Conan Doyle began writing Sherlock Holmes stories in 1886. Star Trek debuted in 1966. In order to 'humanize' the character of Spock, Rodenberry made several allusions back to the classic emotion-free logic/personality of Holmes. In a brilliant twist, Mark Gatiss has the modern Holmes quote Spock with a quote that Spock originally borrowed from the classic Holmes. Nice little nod to how Holmes has influenced the cultural consciousness of a western audience.
