A documentary paying tribute to Leonard Nimoy has its first full trailer.

Just over a year since the still keenly-felt loss of Leonard Nimoy, a documentary remembering his legacy is nearing release.

For The Love Of Spock is directed by Adam Nimoy, Leonard Nimoy's son, and it features interviews with Star Trek figures across the long history of the series. The film is premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival in the US later this month, and will then be made available via streaming services primarily later in 2016.

The origins of the project go back to before Leonard Nimoy's death, and here's how Adam Nimoy pitched the project last year on its Kickstarter appeal page...

For The Love Of Spock trailer © Den of Geek For The Love Of Spock trailer Last year, just before Thanksgiving, I approached my dad, Leonard Nimoy, about the possibility of working together on a film about Mr. Spock. I had skimmed through some of the books on the making of Star Trek and felt there was so much more to explore about the birth and evolution of Spock.

And the timing seemed right, as the 50th anniversary of Star Trek: The Original Series was not that far away. Dad agreed that now was the right time, and that he was 100% committed to collaborating with me on this project. He also reminded me that we were (then) just days away from the 50th anniversary of the start of production on “The Cage,” the original pilot for Star Trek in which Dad first appeared as Mr. Spock.

Please participate in my Kickstarter campaign and help me complete a project that was important to my dad and has become extremely important to me.

A new trailer for For The Love Of Spock has been released, and you can see it right here. Live long and prosper, folks.
