First saw him in a 1950s episode of "Twilight Zone". And that was probably the last time I saw him smiling "in character."
"Classic Star Trek" helped define my generation. It was a hopeful, promising Future amid all the carnage of VietNam, and the deaths of John and Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King, the Manson murders, and endless marches and protests.
He made it "cool" to be a hybrid, "always a child of 2 worlds," like those of us who were "into Science Fiction". And Spock also made Thinking Logically the default setting for solving Life's Problems - not hysteria or violence.
I'd like to think I still carry a bit of Spock in my heart and mind. As for the actor who lived and breathed that brilliant and nuanced character, now you truly know the truth about "Space, the Final Frontier."

Kirk said it best at the end of The Wrath of Khan. "Of all the souls I have encountered, his was the most human."
