Best known for playing Spock in Star Trek, the late actor, poet and photographer Leonard Nimoy has received a deserving tribute in a documentary directed by his son Adam Nimoy, whose career was jump-started by directing episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation. While the film originally started out as a history of the Spock character, Leonard’s death in 2015 changed the project’s course, birthing a dual biography of both the actor and the character he portrayed. Having embodied the human/Vulcan hybrid on the original show, the animated series, six feature films as well as the 2009 reboot, Nimoy’s cultural impact is inextricably tied to the Star Trek franchise. Featuring William Shatner, George Takei, J.J. Abrams and Simon Pegg, the documentary commemorates the beloved icon while also offering insight into Nimoy as a struggling alcoholic and distant father figure. Behind the scenes footage is available for viewing here .
