Here Mr. Nimoy appears on a German game show, again to promote Star Trek III. He's asked about "I'm Not Spock" and explains that he wrote it to show how different his life is from that of the character, citing different work conditions, family life - he has children, Spock doesn't, he has to pay taxes, Spock doesn't. Do his children like Mr. Spock? Yes, Spock was good for his family, he says, helping him build an interesting career, too. Is the binding factor intelligence, maybe, the host asks, because he does so many things that require intelligence like writing, directing and much more. No, he says, Spock is much more intelligent than he, he's a scientist. Spock is an extraordinary person that he respects and admires. Spock inspires people. His friends would even sacrifice their careers for him, stealing the Enterprise. Spock died in Star Trek II, what happens to him in Star Trek III ? For him, Mr. Nimoy explains, it's a story about personal loylty, about people's feelings for each other, and what they're ready to do for the other. How many more films will the future have in store for us? He doesn't know how much longer they can play the roles, but he's sure Star Trek is going to stick around long after that. The host concludes with saying that he's been a fan of Mr. Spock for a long time and now considers himself a fan of Mr. Nimoy, too.
