Wilson Cunha introduces Leonard Nimoy and gives a summary
of Star Trek: The original Star Trek cast began their adventures in the social and political turmoil of the sixties and the original cast winds up the mission with a metaphoric view of the turbulent nineties as the Federation and the Klingons look to make peace.
Leonard Nimoy: It struck me, that this would be an interesting dramatic way to close up the story with this particular crew and this particular vessel. And it would come down as a détent between the Federation and the Klingons. The Klingons have always been recognized as the enemy of the democracies, they have been compared to the communist block ...
WC: ... another diplomatic mission carried out by Leonard Nimoy caused the unification of two other separate camps: Parts of the original Star Trek and Star Trek: The Next Generation.
LN: I had no idea how the emotions were running in this family feud that was going on. I knew that there was this question of allegiance and loyalty and preference: Whom do you like? You like the old guys, you like the new guys? Can you like the new guys and still be loyal to the old guys? No, you can't. (laughing) Can you have a split loyalty? No, you have to decide which one you like. This whose-side-are-you has been going on amongst fans.
WC: The final adventure for the original Star Trek cast has been now in the theaters doing very good business. .... There is the talk that they might come back for just one more. Nimoy thinks not.
LN: Yes, it is possible that some person at Paramount here in their wisdom and says: Gee! Why are we stopping this? Now look at the tremendous box office, tremendous audience acceptance for this franchise. Why shall we stop this great successful thing? Should we do some more? All these things are possible, but I still believe that we are done.
