I love a good Star Trek documentary!

Mar 28, 2020

I have vivid memories of tuning in to the television show, Star Trek as a youngster. In fact, I was particularly fond of Leonard Nimoy’s Mr. Spock. While browsing Hoopla for films, television shows and music, I came across the title For the Love of Spock and could not give it a miss. If, like me, you enjoyed the show, then I think you will also be entertained by this film. Directed by Adam Nimoy, son of the actor, this documentary pays an honest tribute to the life and career of Leonard Nimoy.


Watch it on Hoopla, a streaming platform that you can access for free with your library card.
