"In novels, stream of consciousness goes inside the hero’s head and you can read what he’s thinking. You don’t have that in television and so I thought that if I took a perfect person and divided him into three parts, I could have the administrative, courageous part that would be the Captain; the logical part who is the Science Officer and the humanistic part with the Doctor."  - Gene Roddenberry

“I always thought about it more like it was the dialectic of a human being,” Pine says. “One couldn’t be more logic and reason — that’s his genetic coding. And the other is more impulsive, following his passion, his fists. That was how it was a functional relationship. You have Spock as the cold reason, you had the passion of Jim Kirk, and then you had the ironic sarcasm of McCoy, which gave the whole thing levity. That dynamic was beautiful.” [x]
