I am off this week for Labor Day- but I could not think of NOT doing anything in tribute to Star Trek on the approach of the 50th anniversary of it’s first broadcast on television this coming week in 1966. For me, the heart and soul of Star Trek is Leonard Nimoy, who passed away in 2015. I had the honor of interviewing him in October 2002 in advance of his photo book, “Shekhina.” We discussed his faith, how it applied to his book of photographs of the female form, and the controversy surrounding it. Even though he has physically passed, Leonard Nimoy’s presence is still greatly felt as we approach the half-century mark of one of television’s finest hours- Star Trek. I’ll be back next week with a full hour of program as we continue our month-long look at 50 years of Star Trek.
