By the time The Undiscovered Country rolled around, Spock was a wise “old” man who had learned to balanced logic with emotion and intuition. We saw a further evolution of this on The Next Generation in Unification. And by the time we met Spock in an icy cave the 2009 J.J. Abrams Star Trek, well, he was very wise indeed. But how did he get there when we’ve seen so many other Vulcans never come close? The explanation might just lie in comic form.

In this episode of Literary Treks, Matthew Rushing and Christopher Jones explore IDW’s four-part Spock Reflections series by Scott & David Tipton to find out what events not shown onscreen influenced Spock’s understanding of human friendship and illogical problem solving. Unseen moments from his childhood on Vulcan, post-Amok Time encounters with T’Pring, mentoring Saavik, and secret missions with Pike all played a roll in getting Spock to where we eventually find him. And it all centers around a touching coda to Star Trek Generations.
