Commentary: Trek Stars 126: The 50 Cent Cinematic Universe / by Mike Schindler

Nimoy, Part 1: Trek.

Few people have contributed more to Star Trek than Leonard Nimoy. As an actor, he co-created the character of Spock as we know him. And as a director, he made the first Star Trek film which crossed over into the main stream.

In this episode of Commentary: Trek Stars, John and Mike begin a new series which examines Nimoy's career as a television star, in which we will look at his work on Mission: Impossible, In Search of... and Ancient Mysteries. In the first part of the series, we discuss Nimoy's work on Star Trek, looking at his contribution to the series as both an actor and a director. We also piece together the 50 Cent Cinematic Universe.

Running Time: 45 minutes 37 seconds
