Star Trek is now 50. The one sci-fi series to rule them all has finally hit the big five-oh. Unfortunately, Leonard Nimoy, who was known for his incredible performance as Mr. Spock in the beloved series, died last year before he could see the half-centennial celebrations of the franchise that he helped to make so adored.
To celebrate the life of a truly remarkable man, his son Adam created a feature-length documentary called For the Love of Spock, which features extensive interviews with Nimoy himself about the character he played for most of his life. William Shatner, George Takei, Nichelle Nichols, Walter Koenig, Chris Pine, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, and Neil deGrasse Tyson also appear to share their affinity for Spock and share why they felt that the character became such an icon of popular culture.
The film ended its Kickstarter campaign with whopping $662,640, making the highest-funded crowdfunded documentary of all time. Celebrate the Love of Spock for yourself by purchasing a copy of the film via Amazon. And remember to live long and Prosper!
