Spock is a major character in the original Star Trek series. He is the science officer and first officer on the starship Enterprise, motivated to be logical, known for extremely repressed emotions, and high intelligence. This behavior results in him being a source of inspiration for Sheldon Cooper. He is played by Leonard Nimoy in the original series of Star Trek.
Appearance in TBBTEdit
In Sheldon's first dream, Spock reasons with and convinces Sheldon to play with the vintage mint-in-box 1975 Mego Star Trek Transporter, which is a gift from Penny. Sheldon rapidly wakes up from his dream, opens the box and plays with the toy. But he breaks the toy shortly after and switches it with Leonard's.
In Sheldon's next dream, Spock says he's very disappointed in Sheldon and bids Sheldon to do the right thing. When Sheldon refuses, he is attacked by a Gorn in the dream.
Sheldon later tries to switch back the toys but cannot bring himself to do it. When Penny has persuaded Leonard to open his toy and Leonard finds out it is broken, Sheldon, after much difficulty, admits he has broken and switched his own toy with Leonard's. Then he hands over the switched toy back to Leonard.
