Standard Orbit 252: He's Weird, Whatever

Spock's Emotional Moments.

For someone who claimed to be emotionless and that emotions were "alien" to him, Spock certainly became "emotionally compromised" quite frequently over the years. This week on Standard Orbit hosts Ken Tripp, Zach Moore and Hayley Stoddart discuss Spock's emotional moments in The Original Series, the movies and the Kelvin Timeline.

What's up with the smiling and shouting Spock of the pilot era? Does it count as being emotionally compromised if external forces are at work? Is the Kelvin Timeline's Spock too emotional? All this and much more on this week's Standard Orbit, boldly listen!
