3. The character Spock was supposed to be very different in the beginning
The best part about Spock—besides his compassion, nerdiness, and good looks is how his character evolved over the years. The Spock from the beginning was much different from the Spock at the end of the series.
It was intended originally that the character of Mr. Spock played by Leonard Nimoy would not eat food or drink any liquids. Instead, there was supposed to have been a plate in the middle of his stomach. He was supposed to “feed” off of any energy source that came in contact with the plate.
But the creator thought these traits made Spock too alien, and less relatable the audience. So, he suggested that Spock “should at least be half human and have the problems of both sides,” believing the human traits would make the character more intriguing and convincing when commenting on the human condition.
