Nimoy calls into the Opie & Anthony Show to discuss his upcoming appearance in Star Trek and to promote a photography book. Prior to the 2009 movie, Star Trek, eighteen years had passed since his last involvement with a Star Trek television show or movie. Nimoy says the movie awakened his passion for the series that he had had many years ago. On Zachary Quinto’s portrayal:
He’s showing the character of Spock in the condition that he was in before I started playing him in the series. So you really see how this emotional aspect of his character has to come under control. It’s very,very well done. Zachary’s terrific.
