1982 Star Trek Time Capsule: Nimoy Quizzes Fans on Spock’s Future, Predicting His Return

In a gem from 1982, a video surfaces of Leonard Nimoy, Spock himself, quizzing Star Trek fans right after they witnessed his character’s death in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Despite the seemingly definitive end, fans were buzzing with theories of Spock’s return. Nimoy’s on-the-street interviews revealed a unanimous belief among fans: Spock couldn’t be gone for good. Some guessed he’d be “reborn” thanks to the Genesis planet’s life-giving powers, while others speculated about his return in a later film.
