Leonard Nimoy says he is retired from Spock, whom he last played in 1991. Nimoy is 71 – was anyone expecting Star Trek: Intergalactic Social Security?
- the Star Trek icon is “through with acting” after a 51-year career in film, TV and Mr. Spockdom.
….In lieu of on-camera gigs, Nimoy, who branched out into film directing in the 1980s (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, Three Men and a Baby), is keeping busy behind the camera–the still camera.
“Photography fulfills my creative needs,” Nimoy tells the AP.
Nimoy published a photo essay, Shekhina, in October. The title, a Talmudic term referring to the manifestation of God, proved controversial among some Jewish groups, including the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle, which nixed a Nimoy promotional appearance this fall because, well, the book has naked women in it.

I am far more interested in naked Jewish women than I am Star Trek anyway.
