   Adam Nimoy has found a way to spend countless hours with his late father Leonard Nimoy: He’s creating a documentary for the actor who played Spock on Star Trek. The Spockumentary funded through a Kickstarter campaign that raised over $600,000 will focus on the pop icon and his legacy. The television director and film professor said it would explore his father’s life onscreen and off-screen.  LEONARD NIMOY —->

   For the Love of Spock began as a project for the father and son before Leonard’s Nimoy’s death in February at the age of 83. His father wanted to keep it Spock-centric, but once he passed, Adam knew he had to include more about his father. The documentary will include clips from the Star Trek films and television shows, Nimoy’s other works, and interviews from family, as well as William Shatner who played Capt. James T. Kirk and celebrity fans like Seth McFarlane. Zachary Quinto, who plays Spock in the new movie franchise, will narrate the film.

   With this film, Adam Nimoy hopes he can tie in everything he loves about his father, their lives together, and the many characters he played. For the Love of Spock is expected to be released in time for the 50th anniversary of the Star Trek series in 2016.

   It’s surely one way for the Spock character to live long and prosper.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
