  • Actually, the questioner is CORRECT. And it's because Vulcans have copper based blood rather than iron based blood. (This wsa a plot device used from time to time.)

  • Mr. Spock does not... maybe you are thinking of a different character?

  • By the way...he's not green as in the cactus people of Doctor Who...just green tinged so lightly you can't really tell. But in one episode where he gets flogged, the cuts on his back are definitely green.

  • He does have very pale skin with a greenish tint as mentioned above.

  • He's Vulcan. Goes along with the pointy ears and no emotions. However Mr Spock is only HALF Vulcan and half there ;)

  • I guess he did kind of have a green tint to his skin. Vulcans were supposed to have green blood.
    Orions were the green skinned aliens in Star Trek. Andorians were blue.
    Yeah, I'm a nerd.
