Leonard Nimoy via Skype

When acting legend Leonard Nimoy announced several years ago that he would no longer be attending conventions, many Star Trek fans thought we had seen the last of him at Comic Con. However, Leonard has agreed to join us and host a special panel at Salt Lake Comic Con via Skype!

Leonard is an actor, film director, poet, singer and photographer, best known for his role of Spock in the original Star Trek series (1966–69), and in multiple film, television, and video game sequels. His fame as Spock is such that both of his autobiographies, I Am Not Spock (1975) and I Am Spock (1995), were written from the viewpoint of sharing his existence with the character.

Join us for this ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME EVENT, held at 4:00 p.m. in the South Ballroom. This panel is FREE to anyone with a Comic Con wristband. The ballroom will fill to capacity, so make sure to plan ahead!
