Adam Nimoy Plans to Film a Spock Tribute Documentary

Recently, Adam Nimoy raised $662,000 on Kickstarter to film a Spock tribute documentary. He thanked contributors, writing “I can’t tell you how grateful I am personally for your participating in this great undertaking.”

His father, actor and director Leonard Nimoy, starred as the half-Vulcan, half-human character Spock in the original Star Trek television series. It aired for the first time between 1966 and 1969, and then appeared in many television markets around the world in re-run form. Fans agitated for the return of the series, and eventually a number of television spin off television productions occurred, including Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek Enterprise. During his career, Leonard Nimoy appeared in some eight feature films reprising the Spock role.

Leonard Nimoy passed away on February 27, 2015 at the age of 83. His appearance in the role of Spock helped inspire millions of fans around the world, people who called themselves “Trekkies.” 

Adam Nimoy reportedly plans to title the Spock tribute For the Love of Spock. Actor Zachary Quinto, who plays a younger Spock in an alternate reality version of Star Trek movies, will narrate the documentary. Zachary Quinto appeared and spoke briefly at a memorial held for Leonard Nimoy on June 29th at Symphony Space in New York City, together with Adam Nimoy and others. Actor John de Lancie, who played the character “Q” in several episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation also spoke during the memorial.

Adam Nimoy, aged 58, has worked extensively in the field of entertainment law. He has also directed a number of television episodes in the United States and taught acting. He has directed episodes of two well known television science fiction series, Star Trek: The Next Generation and Babylon 5.
