When he passed away last week at the age of 83, Leonard Nimoy was mourned by actors, artists, politicians, scientists, engineers, astronauts and even the President of the United States. That should tell you something. Few characters have had such a seismic impact on popular culture as Star Trek’s Spock and countless people all over the world felt like they had lost a friend. Amidst the countless tributes, there is now one that stands out: a brief but powerful remembrance from Zachary Quinto, who picked up the Spock mantle in 2009’s Star Trek and its sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness.

The late, great Leonard Nimoy, who died earlier today at the age of 83, will always be Mr. Spock, second-in-command of the USS Enterprise under Captain James T. Kirk. For a long time, Nimoy was not okay with this. And then, over the years, he embraced the character that defined his career and inspired an entire generation of fans (many of whom became scientists, engineers, and astronauts). But Nimoy didn't just sit back and rest on his Vulcan laurels. When he wasn't wearing those pointy ears, Nimoy was acting, directing, writing, singing, and lending his likeness and distinctive voice to commercials and TV specials. He was a real Hollywood renaissance man, dabbling in high art, low art, and everything in-between.
We have very sad news to report from The New York Times: Leonard Nimoy, Star Trek’s Mr. Spock for almost 50 years, has died. Nimoy’s wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, told the Times the cause of death was “end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.” The beloved actor and director was 83 years old.
After the many sins of ‘Star Trek Into Darkness,’ Paramount seems dead set on righting the course of the ‘Star Trek’ franchise with ‘Star Trek 3.’ They ditched controversial director Roberto Orci, hired the great Simon Pegg to co-write the screenplay with Doug Jung, and now, word that hit the internet suggesting that the film will contain three new female characters ... and a villain fit for Bryan Cranston.
2016 marks the 50th anniversary of ‘Star Trek,’ which debuted on CBS in 1966, and Paramount has been adamant about getting the next film into theaters in time to mark the occasion. Today, they officially set the date. If all goes according to plan, ‘Star Trek 3’ will warp into theaters on July 8, 2016.
trueBoy, when they named the last ‘Star Trek’ movie ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ they weren’t kidding. The finished film received decent reviews from critics, but did only so-so in theaters, and quickly became Trekkies’ least-favorite movie in the franchise...
While 'Star Trek' alum Leonard Nimoy make an appearance in both 'Star Trek' and 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' William Shatner, another one of the most recognized figures from days of 'Trek' past, hasn't, but this could all change for 'Star Trek 3.' Roberto Orci, who's been attached to the project for some time following J.J. Abrams' move to 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' reportedly wants to reunite these two buddies onscreen for the third installment.
After basically being the only candidate on the table for weeks, Roberto Orci has finally landed the job of directing 'Star Trek 3.' Paramount must have a lot of faith in Orci, as this will be his first time directing ... ever.
Ever since J.J. Abrams ditched the Enterprise to go make 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' fans have been wondering who would take the captain's seat on the rebooted franchise and make 'Star Trek 3.' After months of rumors, the most nefarious choice of them all is apparently just about to sign on the dotted line: Roberto Orci.
The 'Star Trek' franchise had all kinds of ups and downs over its 50-year history -- there have been great shows and a bad shows, brilliant movies and insipid ones, memorable starship Captains and Captain Janeway. Now, however, the franchise faces its greatest threat yet. Please don't let Roberto Orci direct 'Star Trek 3.'
