|Portrayed by||Leonard Nimoy|
From 2254 through 2265, Spock served as the science officer aboard the I.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 under Captain Pike. In 2265, he conspired with Commander James T. Kirk to distract and misdirect Pike, allowing Kirk to carry out a plot to assassinate the captain. When Kirk became captain of the Enterprise, he rewarded Spock’s loyalty by naming him first officer.
In 2267, Spock encountered Captain James T. Kirk and Dr. Leonard McCoy from another universe when they briefly switched places with the Kirk and McCoy of Spock's universe. Following a mind meld with McCoy in which Spock learned of the pair's true nature, Kirk challenged Spock to confront the illogic of the Terran Empire and become a force for change.
In several timelines that spawned from the incident with Kirk and McCoy in 2267, Spock immediately killed his Kirk; in others, Spock waited years before making his move; in still others, Spock did nothing.
Upon his return, Kirk was placed in the brig with Sulu while Spock conferred with Starfleet Command regarding how to proceed, given the unusual circumstances of the incident. Admiral Decker and the I.S.S. Constellation NCC-1017 were dispatched to personally handle the matter, but before Decker could arrive, Kirk and Sulu engineered an attack on Spock that coincided with an attack by a Klingon attack force. Spock, having already ordered Lieutenant Commander Scott to fully integrate the Tantalus Device into the ship's systems, used the device to drive off the Klingons. Just as that crisis was averted, Kirk attacked Spock on the bridge. The pair were caught in an explosion at the communications console, which Ensign Chekov had rigged to kill Lieutenant Uhura. The explosion wounded Spock, and killed Kirk.
In another timeline, Kirk led an attempted invasion of the Prime Timeline in 2285, but he was not only stopped by his counterpart, he and his entire crew, with the exception of Spock, were killed by the Imperial Starfleet, which had labeled them traitors following the interference of their counterparts.
In this timeline, in which Kirk was not immediately killed, he used the Tantalus Device to make his way up through Imperial politics, eventually declaring himself Emperor Tiberius. He later survived an assassination attempt by Spock, but was driven from power and went into hiding for nearly a century. Upon his reemergence, he attempted an invasion of the GN22 Timeline, but was thwarted by his counterpart and Captain Jean-Luc Picard in that reality.
