The photos that have emerged of Leonard Nimoy as "Old Spock" from the new "Star Trek" movie trailer got me to wondering what it would have been like if Barry Atwater had lived long enough to reprise his role as Surak later in the franchise. We've seen Nimoy as an older Mr. Spock, and Mark Lenard played his father Sarek again in his later years. Atwater died in 1978, before the "Trek" resurgence resulted in more opportunities to play the Vulcan he created on the original series. (Bruce Gray played the role on a 2004 episode of "Enterprise.") So here...through a little amateur Photoshop work, is a composite of "Old Spock" and a screen capture of Atwater in his last TV role, on "The Rockford Files."
