Spock: sex symbol

Mr. Spock: The 'Mystery of Masculinity' Embodied

When Gene Roddenberry created the TV series Star Trek, the suits at NBC had some advice: "Lose the Martian."

They were talking about Spock.

But Mr. Spock went on to become the most beloved half-alien in network history. In fact he went on to become, well, one of the most fascinating fictional characters on TV.

Fascinating — four syllables and one arched eyebrow — that's Spock, just as much as his pointy Vulcan ears.

So, have you seen the new one yet? Oh wait, at the time you posted this it wasn't out yet. I'll keep reading, but I will say that the new one was awesome! And I swore that would never have happened. I was never so pleased to be completely and utterly wrong!
