What is Spock’s Full Name?


Dear Sara,

Do you know what Spock’s full name is?

Phil Einhorn



Yes Phil, it is S’chn-T’ Gaii Spock, son of S’chn-T’ Gaii Sarek (of Skon and Solkar) of Vulcan. This first appeared in the Star Trek book ISHMAEL by Barbara Hambley. Presumbably humans can’t pronounce it. The book was a crossover between Trek and Here Come the Brides. In the book Spock has amnesia and is posing as a nephew of Aaron Stemple. Stemple was played by Mark Leonard on Here Come the Brides and Mark Leonard played Sarek, Spock’s father, on Star Trek!

The name's Sara Bellum, and I'm the editor-at-large here at BuzzyMag - the hostess with the mostess, if you will. I like to think that my first calling is fighting crime and delivering a heaping dose of sweet, sweet justice to all manner of thugs, miscreants, hoodlums, ruffians, and ne'er-do-wells, but unfortunately, violent vigilantism doesn't exactly pay big bucks these days.  

Times are tough, my friends, and I've got bills to pay, so I decided to put my encyclopedic knowledge of all things sci-fi & fantasy-related to use to help me land a day job. To tell you the truth, it's kind of a nice change of pace. My manicures have been lasting a bit longer lately.

    Follow up question Sara –

    Is the book canon to the Star Trek verse? because if it is not official and sanctioned canon than we cannot accredit S’chn-T’ Gaii Spock, son of S’chn-T’ Gaii Sarek (of Skon and Solkar) of Vulcan as Spock’s true name.

    There is quite a bit of debate as to what is considered canon in Star Trek but Gene Roddenberry aka The Great Bird of the Galaxy was the creator of Star Trek and even he constantly changed his opinion on what was and was not canon. “And as long as Gene Roddenberry is involved in it, he is the final word on what is Star Trek. So, for us here – Ron Moore, Jeri Taylor, everybody who works on the show – Gene is the authority” Well The Great Bird has flown and to some extent so has canon. As the book was licensed and approved I take it as canon and a very good read as well for a fan of the original series.What I would like to delete from canon is Sybok, Spock’s half brother that showed up in ST V but we are stuck with him. Thank God for the new alternate time line.
