Nimoy Tweets About Trek 2?

Twitter posts from Leonard Nimoy seem to address the recent rumors regarding the actor’s possible appearance in Star Trek 2.

Recently, several rumors regarding the latest Trek movie have appeared on the Internet and one of the three rumors claimed that Nimoy would be reprising his role of Spock in Star Trek 2.

Nimoy made several Twitter posts that seem to address this rumor. “Humans. Please advise,” he said. “Does ‘talking’ sound like ‘appearing?’”

Another Nimoy Twitter post said, “It seems the answer is ‘no,” except in some cases..’maybe.’ Very human. LLAP.”

Talking might imply “voiceover” and the first post might well mean that we won’t see him “in person” as we did in Star Trek XI, unless it’s in a communication (holovideo from his new residence, perhaps). The second post would seem to address his retirement and having elected to return to the movie.

That last paragraph is, of course, fan speculation. Your mileage may vary.

    Maybe Spock#1 really dies in this Star Trek 2? (imagine one final mind-meld with the ‘new’ Spock…)

    If Spock comes back… And the rumor of Khan is True… I would like to see a Spock to Spock meld…

    Interesting… Abrams seems to have a way of drawing Nimoy out of retirement… witness his reappearance on Fringe tonight and next week…

    The attempt to tie the original timeline in with the new one is the biggest mistake of JJ Trek, especially with regards to the presence of Original Spock.

    It is simply impossible for me to believe that the same Spock who worked furiously on 1930 Earth to help rescue the timeline from a Nazi future would, upon being deposited in a past in which his own home planet is totally obliterated and 98% of his race murdered, simply hang around, shrug “oh well”, and allow that timeline to continue.

    Original Spock is familiar with a dozen different methods of traveling through time. He knows where the Guardian of Forever is. He’s the go-to guy for calculating slingshot trajectories around the sun. He was even the guy who SUGGESTED a time-travel solution to save the Earth from destruction from the Whale Probe. Now he’s just going to sit there?

    This is why, if they had to reboot Star Trek, a clean reboot that owed nothing to the original timeline or characters was the way to go. Instead, in trying to satisfy everybody, they’ve taken the ultimate Trek icon and made him unrecognizable.

    i think its best to have only the new Spock. the young Spock. because this is the beginning of the continuation of Kirk and Spock’s friendship and partnership. it has to go forward.
