According to the article at https://www.metv.com/stories/george-goober-lindsey-was-the-first-ch..., Goober was the first choice for Spock on Star Trek?

What would he say?  "Captain, say it again?"

 "Spock check the computer to make sure we are not running low on dilithium crystals and reboot the prime directive interface to make sure it is compatible with all existing Star Fleet protocols."

"Yo."

However interesting the concept is, I think this is one of those show biz stories that has more fancy in it than truth. Live long and check the oil.

"Speed speed speed. That Gilley Walker is most illogical."  

I find it odd that Lindsey makes no mention of this in his autobiography, 'Goober In A Nutshell.' Great read btw.

I see after doing some checking that Goober was established as a character in April 1964 and Star Trek came in Sept 66 so if you ask me it was then too late for George Lindsey to play Spock since the public would see the goofy Goober Pyle with pointed ears on a star ship. If he had turned down Andy Griffith then maybe another actor wiuld have played Goober and George L would have a more serious intelligent image. But I doubt if Mister Spock could ever make a rowboat go 80 MPH.
