Nimoy Log: Looking Forward To Next Week

This following is a brief guest blog from Leonard Nimoy as he returns to his role as Spock in the new ‘Star Trek.’

I’m looking forward to next Tuesday, my first day of filming. We’ve already done several makeup and wardrobe tests and I’m confident that I’m in good hands with talented people.

Very strange and exciting feelings to be coming back to Star Trek after so many years away.

Feels like a return home. JJ Abrams and his entire crew have gone out of their way to make me feel comfortable with a warm welcome.

More next week.

Must be very weird for him to be returning to the role after so long. I’m looking forward to hearing his thoughts on that.
Enjoy being Spock again, Sir.

Mr. Nimoy,

I was lucky enough to meet you last month at my local Museum of Fine Arts, and I thought you looked more youthful in person than you do in photos. You look terrific, and seeing you reprise Spock is actually the aspect of the film I am most looking forward to. It was a smart move on JJ’s part to include you!

Next Tuesday will be happier for me, knowing that you’re finally back.

p.s. great feature, Anthony.

Leonard – Been a long time since the Sci-Fi project back in ’97…but I’m glad to see you’re coming back to Trek. It’s great to know that you’re back in such a big way, and really great that you’re communicating with fans like this.

Break a leg!

Mr. Nimoy,

I’d just like to say how grateful I am for the honest, respectable way you’ve behaved, both toward the fans and just in general. It’s really neat that you’d take the time to write this.

God bless…

Mr Nimoy,

You are truly a gentleman and a scholar (British saying)

Best wishes to you and the rest of the crew for next Tuesday, its going to be a ball.

Happy Hanukkah.

Man, it’s so great to have the voice of “TOS” reason on the set of this new adventure. I can’t help but feel more comfortable with his involvement, both in front of and behind the camera. And what a fun idea to have him relay his thoughts from the set with a blog!

Mucho thanks to Mr. Nimoy for participating.
Exciting times times for Trek, it’s great to have the original Spock along for the ride!

Here’s to a fun and successful shoot!

Mr. Nimoy, it’s good to know that the future of the franscise is being managed by one of the pioneers of it – can’t wait to see what you, J.J., Roberto, et al, cook up!

December 6, 2007 1:34 pm

Mr. Nimoy,

Thanks for taking a few moments to write, and I hope you’ll share an occasional blog now and then. Tuesday will be an exciting day just knowing that you’re back to help Star Trek regain its past glory. Good luck!

December 6, 2007 1:37 pm

Interesting that almost every post uses ‘Mr. Nimoy’ when referring to Leonard Nimoy while references to William Shatner are almost always ‘The Shat’ or ‘Shatner’.

Hopefully, both Mr. Nimoy and Mr. Shatner will have some opportunity to interact during this latest ST adventure.

Looking forward to Mr. Nimoy’s updates in the weeks ahead.

Mr. Nimoy I find it extremely logical that your character was there at the start of the original generation of the ST franchise and that your character will be there at the end to hand it off to the next iteration.

Break a leg!

Actually, our Captain prefers being referred to as “Bill”. (Mr. Shatner was his father.)

I am excited to see you in yet another adventure, sir!

May your journey be free of incidents.

Godspeed, Mr. Nimoy… knowing that you’re driving force behind this project increases not only my confidence, but my overall excitement for its great success!

Thank you for giving us the gift of Spock again, and for being so open and kind to us fans. It is so appreciated!

What an exciting time for Trekdom everywhere!

Thank you for your blog and all the best for the shooting, Mr. Nimoy – great to have you back as the original Mr. Spock! I sincerely hope to see you alongside Mr. Shatner, the original Captain Kirk, in the upcoming film!

Let the magic come alive once again!

December 6, 2007 1:48 pm

Best of luck Mr. Spock, I mean Mr. Nimoy!

i didn’t think people actually said “god speed” anymore… I think that must be the new propulsion system for the next Ent.

Give me GOD Speed mr. sulu.

Mr Nimoy

Good luck to you, sir.

I’ll echo a lot of the sentiments above. All of us are hoping for a great movie, and are genuinely excited by your enthusiasm towards this new project.

Dont listen to the naysayers, they wish you well too. They’ll all be in the theaters come next year.

Now get those ears on and get in there!!!

Hey, and nice little photo this week in EW. They’ve got a chart suggesting Leonard Nimoy as the official “elegant, older man” contestant on Dancing with the Stars. Which I don’t watch. But I might, if Spock were out there cutting the rug to a mambo. (Any chance. . . ?)

I can’t believe your actually back and will ber brought to tears once I see you on screen. Never thought I would have the priveledge of seeing you act as Spock again. Welcome back and Live Long (and to quote Shat, “you’ve already prospered enoug.”)!!

Welcome back, Mr. Nimoy! I’m so glad you’re reprising your role as Spock. Definitely a legend that deserves to return. Peace, and long life.

Anthony, you totally rock!

December 6, 2007 3:18 pm

Mr. Nimoy, to paraphrase a quote from the first movie you directed, “may the wind be at your back.” Just read your biography from some years ago, “I am Spock.” That you are sir! Continue to live long and prosper!
