Last night was Fox aired the first part of the two-part finale for the fourth season of of their sci-fi show Fringe. The show included a number of guest stars, including a surprise appearance by a Star Trek veteran. We wont say who on the front page to avoid spoilers, but you can watch a clip of this Trek star below.
Leonard Nimoy Returns To Fringe
Once again Leonard Nimoy has come out of acting retirement, this time to return to the character of William Bell on Fringe, a show created by Star Trek team of Bob Orci, Alex Kurtzman and JJ Abrams. Nimoy had a couple of scenes in the episode, watch one of them here.
While Nimoy’s appearance was a surprise, there was a hint he may be returning a couple of weeks ago in the episode "Letters in Transit," which jumped forward to the year 2036 and it showed Bell in suspended animation, encased in “Amber 31422,” although this “appearance” was likely done with CGI.

Last night’s episode "Brave New World (Part 1)" is just half of the two-part season four finale, and it appears likely that Nimoy will be back next week for part 2.
By the way Fringe fans, the show has recently been renewed for one more final season with 13 episodes.
