Welcome to The Death of Super Blog Team Up. As the title indicates, this time were all looking at famous deaths of fictional characters.
For my topic, I chose the death of Mr. Spock in Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan. But before I talk about that, let me back up and talk about Star Trek.
The Enterprise appeared in the credits as Captain Kirk spoke about their 5 year mission. One great thing about Star Trek: The Original Series was the friendship and camaraderie between the main characters. In each episode the Enterprise and its crew would take us on a new adventure.
This Fabulous Star Trek Enterprise Cake was made by Heather Sherman from Art2Eat Cakes.
The crew of the Starship Enterprise voyage through space ‘to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldy go where no man has gone before.’

Dr. McCoy (Bones), Captain Kirk, and Spock have a special chemistry working together that made the show fun to watch.
These Cute Star Trek Cookies were made by Cake Central Member Erica38. They feature Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock, Dr. McCoy, Uhura, Sulu, Chekov, and Scotty.
The crew of the Enterprise were more than just co-workers, they were friends.
This wonderful Star Trek cake was made by SHAM Bakery which is located in San Antonio. The cake was made for a young Star Trek fan who requested a cake featuring “the scene where Kirk and Spock are fighting over the mean lady who didn’t even want Spock.”
In the episode ‘Amok Time’, Spock must return to Vulcan or die. Captain Kirk defies orders and takes Spock back to Vulcan and as Spock’s friend, fights Spock so Spock will not have to fight the other Vulcan and possibly be killed. At the end of the episode, it appears that Spock has killed Kirk because, unknown to Kirk, the fight was to the death. Spock replies to T’Pau when she told him to Live long and prosper: ‘I shall do neither: I’ve killed my captain and my friend.’
In this episode Kirk is a friend to Spock and Spock acknowledges their friendship.
This cake recreates the planet surface from the original Star Trek episode “The City on the Edge of Forever”. The cake is triple chocolate with toffee butter cream. All pieces are made from fondant, and the “sand” is raw sugar. The sign reads “Many such journeys are possible” and is what the Guardian says to Kirk when they return from the past.

In the Star Trek: The Original Series episode, City on the Edge of Forever, Spock and Kirk have a comical dialogue with Spock wanting 5 to 6 pounds of Platinum. Captain Kirk responds, ‘Mr. Spock, this bag does not contain platinum, silver or gold, nor is it likely to in the near future.’ Spock replies: ‘Captain, you’re asking me to work with equipment which is hardly very far ahead of stone knives and bear skins.
In another place in this episode, Edith Keeler tells them that she has a few questions and that she feels they are out of place. Spock asks where she thinks they belong. Edith responds to Spock, ‘You? At his side, as if you’ve always been there and always will.’ – Edith recognized their friendship.
