Sci-fi 50: Mr. Spock

July 31, 2012 | 5:41 p.m.

Mr. Spock, "Star Trek" (1966): Is Spock the greatest alien in TV history? Our tricorder readings say yes. Sorry Mork, Alf and Worf, the only one who came close was Superman (with four live-action series with 24 years of air-time and countless cartoons). The Vulcan native gets it because he was a pure TV creation and the work of a single actor, Leonard Nimoy, who even in reruns lifted America’s interest in sci-fi and made it look as easy as elevating an eyebrow. Fascinating. (CBS)
