In this episode we join the rest of the internet in paying tribute to Leonard Nimoy and his indelible creation, Mr. Spock, by looking at two time-travel movies in which he plays a key role. First we look at the Nimoy-conceived-and-directed Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986), a lighthearted adventure in which Spock discovers his affinity for humpback whales and his uncanny naivety seems to spread to the rest of the crew – including Kirk, who has trouble mackin' under these conditions. Then we consider the very different, badass-centric interpretation of these characters in J. J. Abrams' reboot Star Trek (2009). Kirk has some trouble mackin' in this movie too, come to think of it – Spock not so much.
