‘Take it easy, nothing matters in the end’: William Shatner at 90, on love, loss and Leonard Nimoy

I think I’m arriving good and early for my interview with William Shatner when I click on our video chat link 10 minutes ahead of time. But Shatner has arrived even earlier: there he is, as soon as my Zoom screen opens, poking away at his computer. “I like to get in early to ease my mind. But it’s OK, I can meditate afterwards,” he says. His tone is often heavily ironical, as if he is daring you to accuse him of playing a joke on you. This has led to much discussion from fans about “the Shatner persona”, although Shatner scoffs at the phrase. “I don’t know what that even is,” he says.

Fascinating Look Back at the Magnavision LaserDisc Player with Leonard Nimoy

Leonard Nimoy may be best known for his portrayal of Spock, the half-human, half-Vulcan character on “Star Trek” starting from the very first TV episode, in 1966, to the film Star Trek Into Darkness in 2013, but those around in 1981 may have seen him showcasing the latest technology at the time.

Proposed Leonard Nimoy Memorial Finds Home at Museum of Science

Last Friday, March 26, on the first official “Leonard Nimoy Day” in the City of Boston,” as well as what would’ve been the 90th birthday of the West End native best known for his portrayal of Mr. Spock on the classic TV series “Star Trek,” came the announcement that the Museum of Science would pay tribute to Nimoy – and Spock – with a memorial on its grounds representing the character’s iconic Vulcan hand salutation.

Leonard Nimoy said this is what everyone got wrong about Spock

There's a moment in the Star Trek episode "The Apple" that provides a rare example of Mr. Spock losing control of his emotions. About 18 minutes into "The Apple," Kirk asks Spock, as the science officer, to explain how reproduction works, and instead of matter-of-factly explaining the functions, he instead like a schoolboy awkwardly stumbles over phrasing and even clears his throat.
