Trivia that mentions this person:
Star Trek - Season 3 [1968]
  • Leonard Nimoy is the only actor to appear in every episode of the series.
  • Leonard Nimoy and Majel Barrett are the only actors to appear in both the first ({The Cage}) and last ({Turnabout Intruder}) episodes of the series.
    Star Trek III: The Search for Spock [1984]
  • The scene in which Kirk stumbles into his chair after hearing of the death of his son was an improvisation by William Shatner, who was told by Leonard Nimoy to do whatever reaction Shatner wanted to do. Shatner has never told whether he meant to miss the chair and slip to the ground, or if he had meant to simply hit the seat hard but missed going backwards.
    Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home [1986]
  • When the alien ship is approaching Earth at the beginning to look for the humpback whales, there were originally subtitles saying things like "Where are you? Can you hear us?". The studio wanted to keep them despite Leonard Nimoy's objections. In the first test screening, however, test audiences indicated the subtitles were unnecessary so they were cut.
    Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country [1991]
  • Spock tells the crew, "An ancestor of mine maintained that if you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth." The "ancestor" Spock quotes is Sherlock Holmes, another fictional character well-versed in logic. Leonard Nimoy and co-star Christopher Plummer have both played Holmes on stage and screen. Also, director Nicholas Meyer is the author of several Sherlock Holmes novels, including The Seven Per-cent Solution, considered by many to be the best Sherlock Holmes story not written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
    Star Trek: Generations [1994]
  • This is William Shatner's only [Star Trek] appearance without Leonard Nimoy.
    Star Trek: The Animated Series [1973]
  • Originally the show was not going to include Nichelle Nichols, George Takei, and Walter Koenig due to budget considerations. However, when Leonard Nimoy learned about this, he refused to join the cast unless his friends were included. Rather than lose the most popular cast member, Filmation agreed to sign on Nichols and Takei. While Koenig could not be included because of the budget and, as a result, is the only regular cast member from the earlier series to never make an appearance, he did, however, write one episode: {The Infinite Vulcan}.
    Star Trek: Enterprise - Season 1 [2001]
  • The three Starfleet officers in the sickbay scene in episode #1.1, {Broken Bow}, are named after the leads in the original [Star Trek]: Commander Williams (Jim Fitzpatrick for William Shatner), Admirl Daniel Leonard (Jim Beaver for Leonard Nimoy) and Admiral Maxwell Forrest (Vaughn Armstrong for DeForest Kelley).
    Star Trek: The Next Generation - Season 5 [1991]
  • Because of guest star Leonard Nimoy's schedule, part two of the two-part episode "Unification" was filmed before part one
    Star Trek: Remastered - Season 3 [2008]
  • Leonard Nimoy and Majel Barrett are the only actors to appear in both the first ({The Cage}) and last ({Turnabout Intruder}) episodes of the series.
  • Malachi Throne provided the voice of the Talosian Keeper in the first pilot {The Cage}, which was also Leonard Nimoy's first [Star Trek] appearance. Throne was also with Nimoy for his final [Star Trek] appearance (until coming out of retirement for 2009's Star Trek), the [Star Trek: The Next Generation] Season Five episode {Unification Part II}.
  • Leonard Nimoy is the only actor to appear in every episode of the series.
    Monsters vs Aliens [2009]
  • The two technicians who first discover the incoming meteor call the control center and issue a "Code Nimoy" alert, an homage to Leonard Nimoy as Mr. Spock.
    Transformers [2007]
  • Throughout the film, Bumblebee communicates using his radio, in a manner reminiscent of the Junkions, denizens of the planet Junk, featured in The Transformers: The Movie, who spoke entirely in the form of television broadcasts. Notable transmissions by Bumblebee include: - The voice of Lt. Uhura from [Star Trek] saying "Message from Starfleet." The role of Megatron/Galvatron was previously played by Leonard Nimoy and Frank Welker, who have also both played Spock in Star Trek. - A line, "Across the inanimate vastness of space," was taken from Orson Welles's infamous 1939 radio broadcast The War of the Worlds. Welles's final film was The Transformers: The Movie, where he voiced the planet-devouring Unicron. - A line by John Wayne from El Dorado. Wayne's voice has long been associated as an influence on Peter Cullen's voice for Optimus Prime.
    Star Trek Into Darkness [2013]
  • Leonard Nimoy makes his eighth appearance as Spock in the movies. That breaks the tie with William Shatner for most appearances in the Star Trek universe.
    Atlantis: The Lost Empire [2001]
  • Rourke's middle name, Tiberius, could be a possible reference to Captain James Tiberius Kirk from the show [Star Trek], in which Kashekim Nedakh's voice actor Leonard Nimoy played Spock.
    The Pagemaster [1994]
  • Frank Welker and Leonard Nimoy appear together in this movie. This is the third time they have appeared together, but the only time that Frank does not take over as Nimoy's character. They would later work together again in the sequel Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
  • This movie stars four regular cast members from various Star Trek television series: Patrick Stewart; Leonard Nimoy (Dr. Jekyll has Vulcan shaped ears); Whoopi Goldberg and Robert Picardo. As well as this movie featuring four Star Trek regulars, it also starred two actors who have Star Trek connections: Christopher Lloyd, who played Klingon Commander Kruge in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, and Ed Begley Jr., who played Henry Starling in two episodes of [Star Trek: Voyager] namely {Future's End: Parts 1 and 2}.
    Star Trek Beyond [2016]
  • When Kirk and crew first enter Yorktown's reception area, an announcement can be heard over the intercom referring to a starship with registry number NCC-2893 just arriving. This is a reference to the USS Stargazer (NCC-2893), the first ship that Captain Jean-Luc Picard commanded on [Star Trek: The Next Generation]. While the USS Franklin's registry number NX-326 pays homage to Leonard Nimoy as his birthday is March 26 or 3-26.
    The Big Bang Theory: Season 2 [2008]
  • During his appearance on Inside the Actors Studio Jim Parsons revealed his three favorite scenes: Sheldon receiving a gift from Penny (Kaley Cuoco) - a napkin signed and used by Leonard Nimoy, Sheldon presenting Amy (Mayim Bialik) the relationship agreement, and Sheldon drinking Long Island Iced Tea for the first time.
  • The Bath Item Gift Hypothesis: The napkin really is signed by Leonard Nimoy. A photograph exists of Jim Parsons holding it up.
    The Big Bang Theory: Season 5 [2011]
  • The Transporter Malfunction: One reason that Leonard Nimoy did not appear live as himself is that on the show he has a restraining order against Sheldon Cooper.
    The Big Bang Theory: Season 9 [2015]
  • The Spock Resonance: Only acting credit for Adam Nimoy, son of the late Leonard Nimoy (who had featured in the show in [The Big Bang Theory: The Transporter Malfunction (2012)]). Adam has mostly worked as a copyright lawyer and a TV director, and has appeared as himself in a number of documentaries.
