Leonard Nimoy chat­ting with an Israeli ser­vice­man

Had a shoot last night that I’ve been look­ing for­ward to for weeks. I’m a geek, as you all know, and when I got the assign­ment to do the Leonard Nimoy event for the Jew­ish Fed­er­a­tion of Rochester, I got pumped.

He’s had a broad career from Spock to clas­sic BW pho­tog­ra­phy and must have one of the most rec­og­niz­able voic­es to my gen­er­a­tion.

Any­way, nice event as always by the JFed and Mr. Nimoy was very gra­cious to the guests. And yes, some folks called him Spock and one even said “Where’s your Star Wars [sic] out­fit?!” Mr. Nimoy looks very well for 75 and admits to good genes and work­ing out. He’s also had a pho­to show in LA recent­ly.

When some­one asked about his favorite episode, I won­dered what he’d say, but after the nor­mal demur­ring and ‘I liked them all’ kind of thing, he did actu­al­ly note one he real­ly enjoyed… leave a com­ment with which one you think it was, and I’ll answer in a bit.

Com­ments (from my old blog):
Good heav­ens… I would have a few guess­es: Trib­bles, Pon Farr (Jamie’s cousin?), Spock­’s Brain, The Romu­lan Inci­dent… titles of the actu­al episodes escape me, but you get the idea.

Ah, RC2, I think you’ve hit on it with one of those, but I’m nev­er sure of the names either. I’ll reveal all (well, not real­ly all!) lat­er.

BTW, Weird Al’s MySpace site has the ‘White and Nerdy’ video which is a hoot and refs Kirk vs. Picard…
