My Weekly Spock – Nimoy in The Lieutenant Part II

Hey All!

Here’s what I suspect a couple of my fangirls here were waiting for since last week (you know who you are!) Here’s Leonard at his finest in the rest of my stills from The Lieutenant episode In the Highest Tradition

He was quite a firecracker here, and Nimoy and Barrett played so well off of each other that their characters of the intense director (Gregg) and  his assistant (Ruth) would have made a great spin-off.  I can see it now:  The Director, starring Leonard Nimoy and Majel  Barrett!  With lots of sexual tension  and plenty of anguished moments where Gregg strips his shirt off…  Truly a missed opportunity!

You can see the whole episode here.

 

 

My Weekly Spock — Nimoy in ‘The Lieutenant’ (Pt. I)

Hey Kids,

Here’s your weekly fix; some screencaps of Leonard in “The Lieutenant”, a military series by Gene Roddenberry in 1964.  This episode, In the Highest Tradition, was a stepping stone for Nimoy’s casting in Star Trek.

Nimoy plays an hyper A-Personality director who’s hot to make an action war picture based on the exploits of one of the commanders of the title character.  Sounds great but the commander has a secret shame…

More pics next week, (you won’t want to miss those)  and yes, that IS Majel Barret (Nurse Chapel) as Nimoy’s secretary!
