Leonard Nimoy Talks ‘Star Trek 2’


In a recent interview, Leonard Nimoy discussed his possible involvement in Star Trek 2, here is what he had to say…

“My understanding is they’re working on a script right now, I expect there’s going to be some time before they really know exactly who they need and what they need. I frankly, frankly doubt that I will be called upon again. I think I was useful in his last film to help bridge between the original characters, the original actors, and the new cast. They have a wonderful new cast in place, and I’m sure they’ll move ahead with them. I don’t see, at the moment, why they would need me in the next film, although, if they called me, I’d be happy to have a conversation about it.”

So he is willing, but seems to think that he won’t be brought back. He also discussed working in the JJ Abrams reboot of the franchise, saying…

“It gave me a sense of validation after all these years. I had been out of it for some time, as you’re probably aware. There were several Star Trek series in which I was not involved and Star Trek movies in which I was not involved. This was a re-validation of the work that I had done, the work that we had done on the original Star Trek… I had a great time working on the movie. I think they did a brilliant job, and I think the audience response shows that that was the case and has reinvigorated the franchise.”
