Gut reaction: it would be extremely hard for Spock to find the Thing(s) and defeat it before he would become part of it.  Or something like that.

If this were TOS Captain Spock I would say sure he could figure it out and kill the alien but this version of Spock is young and inexperienced. Relfexes or not, he wouldn't get the job done.

That is a good point.  But this Spock is younger and much more agile then the Spock we all know and love from our childhood.

Much faster and agile. He chased after Khan, a genetically modified human with peak reflexes, incredibly high IQ, and created for tactical fighting and combat, and held him off in a fist fight for a good while. Quinto/Spock is very quick on the draw, and just like the old Spock he isn't afraid of his own safety to get the job done.

The Thing was only stopped because it was stuck in Antarctica. Spock didn't get the ice planet thing right cuz the only thing he ever dumped on an ice planet came back and took his ship.

The more I think about it though, none of that will help Spock much at all.  He would be able to evade some attacks but that would be it.

I'm thinking the Thing would infect the Flood as it is on a cellular level in its assimilation.  The Flood had tendrils that 'tapped' into its host
