Re: Questions about Spock and other things

1. Was Spock's face burned from the radiation?
Yes. He got a lethal dose, which causes burns and the so-called "walking dead" period in which the symptoms of radiation poisoning decrease but there is no hope for a cure. This period was very short b/c he got a huge dose.

2. Why did McCoy try to do a neck pinch?
He was experiencing anxiety associated with having Spock's katra, and he was desperately trying to find a way to recover Spock's body and find peace. When the police officer detained him, he wasn't thinking clearly and just wanted to go. His mixed mind attempted to use Spock's never pinch, but it didn't work because McCoy lacked the physical strength or the notion to use it but not the physical technique were manifesting in his mind.

3. Do you think McCoy was aware he was cspeaking like Spock?
He knows something is wrong with his mind, but he doesn't detect every time he manifests one of Spock's behaviors or voice patterns.

4. Do you think when Kirk's son died that McCoy was trying to comfort him or was it Spock's katra trying to comfort him?
I always thought it was McCoy, but you raise a good question. He was like someone suffering from bipolar or schizophrenia. You never know when the behavioral anomalies will start.
