What are the best Spock quotes that you still use today? Mr. Spock is one of the greatest characters ever written for television, and thanks to his reliance on logic, he's had some interesting things to say over the years whether it was on the original Star Trek or any of the other series or films he's appeared in.

From comments that show just how he felt about working on the USS Enterprise with "May I say that I have not thoroughly enjoyed serving with humans? I find their illogic and foolish emotions a constant irritant" to more helpful comments about the nature of command with "You're the captain of this ship. You haven't the right to be vulnerable in the eyes of the crew. You can't afford the luxury of being anything less than perfect. If you do, they lose faith and you lose command," let's take a look at the greatest Spock quotes in Star Trek history, ranked by your votes.
