Star Trek premiered in 1966 and turned Nimoy into a legitimate star. Nimoy always stayed active as an actor, but his role as Spock on the television show and the Star Trek movies over the years dominated his reputation.
"The snark of Star Trek: 2009 that made us fall in love." <-- i've never heard 'live long and prosper' said so much like 'f**k you' <-- it was fuck you, Spock style <-- Oh my! The sass game is quite strong.
