Spock once stated he was a descendent of Mister Sherlock Holmes.

Not quite. I seem to remember the line (approximately). "An ancestor of mine once said that when you elminate the impossible, whatever reamins, however improbable, nust be the truth."

Soemone in his family could have read a Holmes novel, or seen a Holmes film and liked and started using that line.

If you want to be nitpicky:
To say something and to quote something are very different things.
Spock would be precise enough to distinguish here.
Of course you could argue Sir Conan Doyle himself was an ancestor of
the Graysons

Anything is possible, and I grant that it is possbile for Doyle to be Grayson ancestor. But we all pick up things growing up that others say/do, so if one of Spock's ancestors/relatives said this alot...you know...

I am still waiting for Spock to discover that he is a werewolf. "Grayson" is a much-used werewolf surname ...

if we are going to see crew members families, I want to see Bones and his exwife. The overemotional doctor would be on overload.

Oh that would be totally funny, especially if the right actress is cast to play a b*tchy ex as an emotional counter. Oh and you have to add the often spoke-of history of Bones liking the ladies. And maybe the ex goes after Kirk to get under Bones skin.
