Spock and Kirk

As seen in: The original Series cast Star Trek movies (1979 through 1991), Star Trek (2009)

Played by:
Leonard Nimoy, William shatner; Zachary Quinto, Chris Pine

Hangers on / third wheel:
Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy (DeForest Kelley, Karl Urban), Nyota Uhura (Nichelle Nichols, Zoe Saldana)

Defining moment of friendship:

"I have been – and always shall be – your friend."

Trust Spock to sacrifice himself to save the Enterprise - because the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the one. Trust him not to tell Kirk what he's doing until it's too late to stop him. And trust Kirk to rush to his dying friend's side and give us hands-down the most emotional moment you've ever seen in a sci-fi movie. At Spock’s funeral, for the first time, William Shatner’s over-dramatic pause doesn't seem over-dramatic. And it’s one of the few moments in cinema when bagpipes are acceptable… a rare feat indeed.
