The Star Trek community is celebrating the rich, full life and mourning the death of Leonard Nimoy, the originator of the character Spock in September of 1966. Leonard Nimoy played Spock in what is now called Star Trek: The Original Series. He also played Spock in a number of Star Trek movies, most recently Star Trek: Into Darkness.
They called him a legend on his home world
As far as I can tell, Spock is the first human-alien hybrid to be a main character in a television series. Kal-el (more commonly known as Superman) was pure Kryptonian. Star Trek provided little detail as to the meeting of Ambassador Sarek of the planet Vulcan, and human teacher Amanda Grayson. Star Trek also declined to explore how this interplanetary marriage was received by the cultures of Earth and Vulcan. All we know is that Spock was considered to be a legend on his home world of Vulcan. (Star Trek: The Original Series: Amok Time)
They called him a legend on his home world. I was obsessed with Star Trek: The Original Series as a child. It offered a vision of the future where humanity had overcome its ethnic and religious enmities and united as a race. The captain of the Enterprise was American, the navigator was Russian, the helmsman was Japanese and the communications officer was African (or was it African-American?). Star Trek offered a vision of the future where humanity had not only reached the planets, but the stars.
They called him a legend on his home world. I find it a remarkable phenomenon that many scientists and engineers working at NASA were inspired by Star Trek.
They called him a legend on his home world. I have already explored the difficulties faced by interethnic marriages are among humans. They say that Amanda Grayson was well-received on Vulcan. They say she was addressed as “the Lady Amanda.” But what did they say behind her back? How did they feel about this innovation? And how did Amanda’s family on Earth receive her departure?
They called him a legend on his home world. One thing that is indisputable is that the character Spock has been an enormous hit with humanity. I would like to offer an alternative perspective. It is as if someone (for whatever reason) wished to present alien-human interbreeding in the most positive possible light. The families and cultures raised no objections, the pregnancy and birth was uneventful, the child was well-adjusted on his father’s world, and he grew up to be a hero and a legend. Isn’t it remarkable how well things turned out?
Star Trek: The Original Series, and the later versions of Star Trek offered one possibility as to what a greater community of intelligent life might be like. Perhaps it is important to know what it is really like? What is the reality?
