Doctor Benjamin Spock was a 20th century Human pediatrician.

In 2371, while The Doctor was looking for a name, Dr. Spock was one of the possible choices. (VOY: "Ex Post Facto")

Gene Roddenberry denied rumors that he purposely used Dr. Spock's surname for his Vulcan character, Mr. Spock. (Star Trek Encyclopedia 2nd ed., p. 458)
In 1968 Spock was sentenced to prison after encouraging draft evaders and claiming the Vietnam War to be anti-constitutional. This resulted in a gag scene being filmed during the production of "Spock's Brain", showing Leonard Nimoy in handcuffs and with a prop gun pointed at him, holding a newspaper with the headline, "Spock gets 2-year prison term".
