Uh, okay

You Guys remember James Bond: Goldfinger? I bet you can. There was some Villain that covered the entire Human Skin with Gold and the Person died. Why? Well, the Secret is nearly the same as here with Spock. Sure he is an Living Lifeform, but he also inhales Oxygen. So how do his Lungs Work with his Entire Skin being Stone? And not only that, wehit his Skin now out of Stone his internal Body heat is slowing cooking him from inside. Imagine an Car Engine running without the Water or Air Cooling System working.

Anyway, perhaps i am asking to many Questions. I am sorry

You sure are. But good ones. We’ve seen silicon-based life forms in Star Trek before. Remember the Horta? I’m not sure the ONLY modification made on Spock was to cover him in stone…

Is this Star Trek or am I somehow reading season four of LEGO Nexo Knights in a comic book format?
