if he was that smart maybe he didn't want to be captain.

just like the most intelligent men in America are smart enough not to want to be president.

his weakness was that he didn't know how to feel emotion, which would have lead to wrong decisions in stressful situations.

Actually, I think the opposite.

A Captain should be cool and collected without emotional responses...Spock would've been perfect.

Re: How come Dr. Spock was only 2nd in Comand when he was clearly the strongest and most intelligent crew member?
he was impartial and rode the middle ground, cleaving to cool blue logic and unemotional assessment, which made him a first rate advisor to a leader.

leaders are nothing without good advisors.

but a good leader tends to be more fiery and an extremist, with extremely strong convictions, which is why Kirk made a great Captain.

And sometimes, you just have to know when to break the rules.

Spock is the type to follow each rule by the letter.

He wasn't DR Spock, he was Mr. Spock and Bones was the doc. Dr. Spock is a pediatrician who wrote baby books.

Anyhow I thought Spock was way sexier than Kirk.

Good question. Unlike when Bush ruled America. Bush is the most intelligent American ever to be born. Long live king George and his patriot acts. May the legacy of his NEVER ENDING WARS touch us all.

I rather think that at that time it would not have been acceptable by the population that decisions about the future of earth people to be solely depending on an emotionless alien, how logic and clever he might have been.

Spock was the Asperger phenotype of the group... lacking social bonding skills and irrational emotional games.

To lead a ship full of irrational emotional social creatures, you would have to be one of them.

A leader who can't bond with a ship full of humans would end up with a bad crew problem.

Off topic for a second.

I used to love in TNG how Riker used to get offered his own ship all the freaking time, but he'd turn it down again and again.

You just knew he was waiting for Picard to croak so he could get his hands on the Enterprise... I bet he was creaming his pants when the Borg kidnapped old baldy.

Lacking emotion, he was not suited for the rank of captain of a star ship.
There was the possibility he would make life or death decisions without empathy or the ability to take into account the emotional effects of his decisions on those who would be affected by them. Also he was unable to comprehend the motivations of others who's actions were influenced by their emotions.

It is the ears.

You can't get ahead in life with them things.

He should have seen a plastic surgeon, then he would have been captain.
