Spock half-alien character in the "Star Trek" U.S. entertainment franchise, developed and named 1964 by series creator Gene Roddenberry, who later said he was simply searching for an alien-sounding word and not thinking of popular baby doctor and author Benjamin Spock, whose name is of Dutch origin.
