    I attended the 1992 NAB convention and videotaped the induction of the Star Trek main characters into the NAB Hall of Fame. This is just that part of the ceremony. Handheld. Don't think any other fans were there, and doubt this ceremony has ever seen the light of day before.

    Leonard Nimoy—the famed actor synonymous with Star Trek’s iconic Mr. Spock—died on Feb. 27. He leaves behind two children, a storied career and one of the most recognizable characters in pop culture. He’s also a reminder of a different era in America—the years after World War II when the military was more connected to the public, and when it wasn’t so strange for an actor to be a soldier at the same time. In the early ’50s, Nimoy was just another hungry actor with parents who worried he’d never have a real job. So he did what a lot of...

    “I loved Spock,” said President Obama, reacting to the death of actor Leonard Nimoy. Why? Because Spock reminds him of himself. The galaxy’s most famous Vulcan, the president wrote, was “Cool, logical, big-eared, and level headed, the center of Star Trek’s optimistic, inclusive vision of humanity’s future.” Just like you know whom. The president is not the only writer who has drawn comparisons between himself and Spock. I am also a Star Trek fan, but I admit I was somewhat confused by my rather apathetic reaction to Nimoy’s death. And as I thought more about the president’s statement, I realized...

    A new iconic image was posted to Twitter Saturday by NASA astronaut Terry Virts in tribute to Leonard Nimoy. Astronaut tributes to Mr. Spock – and Leonard Nimoy, the human actor who donned a pair of pointy Vulcan ears – continued Saturday.

    Leonard Nimoy, the sonorous, gaunt-faced actor who won a worshipful global following as Mr. Spock, the resolutely logical human-alien first officer of the Starship Enterprise in the television and movie juggernaut “Star Trek,” died on Friday morning at his home in the Bel Air section of Los Angeles. He was 83. His wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, confirmed his death, saying the cause was end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

    I was watching 'The Detective'(1968 - Frank Sinatra / Lee Remick) tonight. Around 20 minutes in Sinatra is having a flashback to the moment he met his wife, Lee Remick. (Remick was 'smoking hot' by the way!) As Remick walks up the steps of a NYC museum Sinatra walks right by her and is stunned. Just as the scene opens you can see two young men and an attractive girl in the immediate background. The man to the right is in a tan raincoat. It's Leonard Nimoy!? I'd swear it's him being used as an extra. He simply disappears off...

    Their partnership anchored a TV cult phenomenon and inspired films, parodies, even a genre of homoerotic fiction. Capt. James Tiberius Kirk and Spock, or rather the actors who played them, were welcomed to Toronto like gods yesterday on the eve of the 40th anniversary of the first televised episode of Star Trek. A sold-out crowd of 500 trekkies at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre gave William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy a standing ovation as the men made a lively joint appearance, their first together in Canada.
