For the Love of Spock Documentary Trailer debuts on Facebook

Leonard Nimoy was an icon for the ages.  A man that it seems only good can be said of.  His death only just over a year ago on February 27, 2015 shook the world and a generation of geeks who considered him their grandfather.

His son, Adam, launched a kickstarter to complete a project that he and his father had discussed and began in 2014

 I approached my dad, Leonard Nimoy, about the possibility of working together on a film about Mr. Spock. I had skimmed through some of the books on the making of Star Trek and felt there was so much more to explore about the birth and evolution of Spock. And the timing seemed right, as the 50th anniversary of Star Trek: The Original Series was not that far away. Dad agreed that now was the right time, and that he was 100% committed to collaborating with me on this project. He also reminded me that we were (then) just days away from the 50th anniversary of the start of production on “The Cage,” the original pilot for Star Trek in which Dad first appeared as Mr. Spock.

Almost 10,000 people answered the call, eventually donating $662,640.   It’s a documentary that will tug at your heartstrings whether you are a Trekkie (Trekker) or not.  It’s the story of an actor, photographer, father and man who touched millions of lives.
