And it seemed fitting, Nimoy tells BGR, to include along with a host of remembrances, show clips and more an interview in his film with a Star Trek-loving character on one of the most popular TV shows today.

Some of what Nimoy is shown filming during that Big Bang episode will be seen in his documentary, which he says will be ready in time for the 50th anniversary of series in September.

Thanks to contributions from Trekkies with an abiding appreciation of the series, the Spock doc is being made with the help of more than $662,000 from upwards of 9,400 backers.

For the director, it s surreal on a number of fronts.

He mentions, as an example, a scene showing the relationship between Spock and the character Leila Kalomi in the episode titled This Side of Paradise.

In it, strange flowers weaken Spock s inhibitions and he falls in love with Leila, played by actress Jill Ireland.
