Character Bio

Ambassador Spock photo
Ambassador Spock as a result of his occasional displays of emotion during his Enterprise missions, he decided to undergo the kolinahr ritual (on his home planet of Vulcan) to purge himself of the last vestiges of emotion. Spock aborted this training and resumed his Starfleet career both for personal reasons and to help Admiral James T. Kirk during the V'Ger incident.

(Star Trek: The Motion Picture)

Sometime after the V'Ger incident, Spock was promoted to captain and assigned to Starfleet Academy, where he trained cadets on the Enterprise.

In early 2285, Spock ceded command of the Enterprise to Admiral Kirk during a mission that involved keeping the Genesis Device out of the hands of Khan Noonien Singh. When Khan armed the device after having been defeated by Kirk and the Enterprise, Spock sacrificed his own life by repairing the Enterprise's plasma conduits – in a severely irradiated portion of engineering – in order to save the crew.

(Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan)

When Spock's coffin landed on the surface of the Genesis Planet, the radiation emanating from the planet caused his cells to regenerate. Meanwhile, Kirk and the rest of the Enterprise's senior staff disobeyed Starfleet orders so that they could retrieve Spock's body, and discovered that he had been reborn as a child (and was quickly aging to adulthood), but whose mind was a complete blank. On Vulcan, Spock's living body was reunited with his katra (the Vulcan soul), which Spock himself had placed in Dr. Leonard McCoy prior to his death.

(Star Trek III: The Search for Spock)

He was involved in saving Earth from destruction by an alien probe in 2286.

(Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)

In 2293, Spock was given command of the "Gorkon Initiative" as it was he who opened secret talks with Chancellor Gorkon following the Praxis disaster. Spock later committed Captain Kirk to the negotiations with the Klingon Empire. Kirk's presence was merely a formality as Spock was in command of the entire mission being "Special Envoy" of the Federation. During Kirk and McCoy's subsequent trial and imprisonment for the assassination of Gorkon, Spock took command of the Enterprise and the murder investigation.

(Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country; TNG: "Unification II")

Diplomatic career

In 2293, Spock recommended an alliance between the Klingon Empire and the Federation at the Khitomer Conference. An alliance was forged, bringing peace and stability to the Alpha Quadrant that had not been there for two hundred years.
(Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country; VOY: "Alliances")

Also during the Khitomer Conference, Spock opened up negotiations with Ambassador Pardek of Romulus in an attempt to unify Vulcan and the Romulan Star Empire.

(TNG: "Unification I", "Unification II")

In his later years, Spock went into semi-retirement, choosing to act as a Federation ambassador (much as his father had done). In 2368 Spock undertook a secret personal mission Romulus, that was in no way authorized by the Federation Council or Starfleet. There he acted to facilitate Romulan-Vulcan reunification. Captain Picard met Spock on Romulus and informed him of his father's death. The two mind-melded, allowing Spock to realize the depth of his father's feelings for him.

(TNG: "Unification I", "Unification II")

In 2369, Spock was involved in an incident of "cowboy diplomacy" in which Deanna Troi was temporarily kidnapped to help with the defection of three Romulans, including Vice-Proconsul M'ret, to the Federation.

(TNG: "Face of the Enemy")

When an unknown person was beamed on board the USS Enterprise-D in 2370, Ben told a few junior officers that he heard that this was Ambassador Spock.
