It made sense to bring Leonard Nimoy’s version of Spock into the fold for J.J. Abrams’ ‘Star Trek’ reboot. The character’s actions on screen literally restarted the franchise, allowing Abrams and his team to introduce younger versions of our cherished characters. But does it make any sense to bring Nimoy back for the sequel?
It's hard to think that an entire generation of young folk are more intimately familiar with the 'Star Trek' of J.J. Abrams' reboot franchise, given the decades worth of 5+ TV series, and 10 resulting films, but the idea of bring 'Star Trek' back to TV is hardly a new one. So what are the odds of seeing that materialize in the near future?
Las Vegas already has replicas of the Statue of Liberty, the Eiffel Tower and Egypt’s famed pyramids. A life-sized recreation of the U.S.S. Enterprise seems like the next obvious step in a very natural progression, right? Alas, that plan is not to be. Find out the plans and why it didn't happen below.
Nixon may have shook Elvis' hand, but we know he wasn't happy about it. Last night 'Star Trek' star Nichelle Nichols tweeted a photo taken in the Oval Office on February 29th of this year. (February 29th? A pocket universe that comes but once every four years!)
The communications officer of the original U.S.S. Enterprise posed with our Commander-in-Chief, giving the Vulcan salute. And nerds are “beaming” with patriotism.
'The Simpsons' may not be the attention-grabbing powerhouse it once was (except when they make epic 'Game of Thrones'-syle couch gags), but they're never lacking for a bit of classic nerd fan-service.
Former 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' star Brent Spiner announced months ago via his Twitter that he'd be lending his voice to an upcoming episode of 'The Simpsons,' playing appropriately enough, a robot, but today we get to see the first images from forthcoming March 18 'Simpsons' episode "Them, Robot."
That Leonard Nimoy sure likes to talk a big game about retiring from acting, but leave it to the eggheads of 'The Big Bang Theory' to engineer a way for the legendary sci-fi actor to make an appearance.
That's right, 'Bang' theorists, we're all about to live a bit prosperously longer when former 'Star Trek' star Leonard Nimoy finally makes his presence known on an upcoming March 29 episode of 'The Big Bang Theory,' according to a new TVLine report.
