OK, here’s the thing, we were all devastated when Leonard Nimoy died.

He, especially as Spock, had become one of the celebrities who become something else… they become important to us as fans and as human beings.

However, as much as we loved the man, we can only begin to imagine how great the loss was to his son, film-maker Adam Nimoy.

And it’s for this reason we’re excited for his new documentary about his dad and Spock in particular.

And yes, we’re ready to cry man – and woman – tears for this one…

For the Love of Spock will be available online from September 9th.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
