Gene Roddenberry originally conceived Spock’s skin color to be a certain color. Unfortunately this would have meant extra hours in make-up for Leonard Nimoy. Fortunately for him, an early make-up test showed the particular color desired, appeared as black on Black and White TVs. As most TVs in the ’60s were still B & W, the idea was dropped.
