In 1983, Leonard Nimoy produced a low-budget TV special called Leonard Nimoy: Star Trek Memories. In the hour-long special, he recalled the original series and talked about the first two Trek movies, as Star Trek III: The Search for Spock wouldn't be out until mid-1984. The special was taped in Boston at Channel 56, which was the main station showing syndicated Trek episodes in the Boston market at the time.

More than a decade later, William Shatner came along with his own direct-to-video package, William Shatner's Star Trek Memories.

But let's step back and revel in 1983's quiet hour spent with Nimoy, as he walks us through, quite literally, his memories of the show and movies. He talks about how he got the part, how the show worked, and gives just a hint of what might come next. (Keep in mind that at this point in the movies' continuity, Spock's fate was, at best, unclear.)

The special is broken into four parts on YouTube. Enjoy:
