Nimoy's screen test for the first pilot

Not yet even sporting the ears which would give him so much trouble, Leonard is tested for the role of Spock, These series of photos were reproduced in an issue of the excellent fan magazine "Enterprise Incidents," of which you will be seeing more of here very soon.

The woman in the shot is an unidentified actress, in the shot to show the contrast between fair skin and Nimoy's darker makeup, to see how it looked in black-and-white, since most TVs were still black-and-white in those days.

From the Blooper Vaults: Adam Nimoy visits the set and pulls a joke on pop!

"Daddy, can I have a Sehlat for my birthday? Ple-e-e-e-ease?
I promise I'll feed him and clean up after him!"
