Considering how utterly gutted he looked when he thought he'd killed Kirk I think snapping when his whole planet had blown up was expected.
And let's not mention how HAPPY he was when it turned out that Kirk was alive. . .

Re: Spock & Spock Prime: Was the Torch Successfully Passed?

TOS was constantly finding excuses for Spock to beat up Kirk, in "The Naked Time," "This Side of Paradise," "Amok Time" . . . whenever he was emotionally compromised in some way.

I always figured Spock smacking Kirk around the bridge of the new Enterprise was basically a homage to those scenes.

And the original Spock was certainly capable of expressing irritation on occasion. For example: just look how exasperated he gets with all that bureaucratic stonewalling in "Mark of Gideon." Not to mention the way McCoy gets on his nerves in "The Tholian Web."

Seriously, though, you make a very good point. I don't know where some people get the idea that Spock is an emotional automaton, but it certainly isn't from any Star Trek that aired in the real world. . .

As BillJ said, Spock wasn't always the stoic, coldly logical character early in TOS, this Spock HASN'T led the same life as Spock Prime, and we never saw Spock under the emotional pressures he is under in ST09 in TOS. . .so really, you can't say how TOS Spock would react. . .

The most telling scene is after the mind meld on Delta Vega. Kirk had tears down his face, and is trying hard to pull himself together. Spock Prime apologizes, saying "emotional transferrence is an effect of the mind meld."
Spock is crying his eyes out over the deaths of the Romulans and the Vulcans, but he's not showing it (although his voice did get thick and teary when he said "Jim, I just lost my planet. I am emotionally compromised.")

Makes you wonder what was going on inside during some TOS episodes...

^ Indeed.

So I was poking around the 'nets and I saw this picture. It made me think of Vulcan Driver's Ed:

They feature in every NuTrek K/S vid.

Here, have a look at my absolute favorite one:

(Even if you don't like K/S this video is very well done and full of beautiful men.)
