In 2014, just before Thanksgiving, Adam Nimoy approached his dad, Leonard Nimoy, about the possibility of working together on a film about Mr. Spock. Adam had skimmed through some of the books on the making of Star Trek and felt there was so much more to explore about the creation and development of Mr. Spock. And the timing seemed right, as the 50th anniversary of Star Trek the original series was not that far away. Leornard Nimoy agreed that now was the right time, and that Leonard was 100% committed to collaborating with Adam on this project. Leornard reminded his son that they were (then) just days away from the 50th anniversary of the start of production on “The Cage,” the original pilot for Star Trek in which his dad first appeared as Mr. Spock.
On July 1st, 2015, they wrapped up a successful Kickstarter campaign, and broke records to become the largest successful documentary project raised on Kickstarter.com to date.
