    Spock is a fictional character from the "Star Trek" franchise, famously known for his trademark Vulcan salute and phrase, "Live long and prosper." Portrayed by actor Leonard Nimoy, Spock serves as the science officer and first officer on the starship USS Enterprise. From the planet Vulcan, Spock represents the embodiment of logic, reason, and emotional suppression, which often contrasts with the more intuitive and emotional characteristics of human characters. His character also reflects the struggle between his Vulcan and human ancestry. In programming context, Spock is also a testing and specification framework for Java and Groovy applications.

    Spock, commonly Mister Spock, is a fictional character in the Star Trek media franchise. First portrayed by Leonard Nimoy in the original Star Trek series, Spock also appears in the animated Star Trek series, two episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, seven of the Star Trek feature films, and numerous Star Trek books, comics, and video games. In the 2009 film Star Trek, Nimoy reprised his role alongside Zachary Quinto, who played a younger, alternate-universe version of the character, and Jacob Kogan playing Spock as a child. Spock serves aboard the starship Enterprise, as science officer and first officer, and later as commanding officer of two iterations of the vessel. Spock's mixed human-Vulcan heritage serves as an important plot element in many of the character's appearances. Along with Captain James T. Kirk and Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy, he is one of the three central characters in the original Star Trek series and its films. After retiring from Starfleet, Spock serves as a Federation ambassador, contributing toward the détente between the Federation and the Klingon Empire. In his later years, he serves as Federation ambassador to the Romulan Empire and becomes involved in the ill-fated attempt to save Romulus from a supernova.
