To Spock Or Not To Spock

From a newspaper clipping dated August 4th, 1977, comes this interview with Nimoy as he contemplated the pros and cons of playing the Spock character again. We're glad he was persuaded to when the plans were finally nailed down for the movie; I don't think we would have been so lucky had the been a new Trek series in the 70's.

Bonus: Below, a Shatner family picture from a movie/TV magazine sometime in the late 60's.

Interesting that the captions mention that "They still with their mother", this is after the divorce but still during Trek's run.
