Mr. Spock - Acting on the logical
mandate "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, or
the one" Spock rescued the crew of the Starship
certain death, in the film Star Trek: II: the Wrath of Khan
(1982) when he entered a warp engine chamber flooded with
radiation to repair the damaged segment that would give the ship
the power it needed to escape an apocalyptic explosion from the
Project Genesis bomb.
Spock's last words to Captain Kirk
(William Shatner) were: "I have and will always be...your
friend. Live long an prosper." At Spock's funeral Kirk's final
words were "Of my friend I can say only this...of all the souls
I have encountered, his was the most...human." Ship's
physician's Leonard McCoy's final comment of Spock was "He's
really not dead if we remember him."
(introduced on STAR TREK/NBC/1966-69) was resurrected in the
sequel movie Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (1984) when the
soul of Spock (his Katra) was re-infused into his regenerated
body during the Fal-Tor-Pan ceremony, a ritual supervised by
T'Lar, the Vulcan high priestess (Dame Judith Anderson).
