William Shatner Asked His Fans To Take ‘Spock’ Selfies… Today He Unveiled Why. August 11, 2017

Since their days on Star Trek, William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy have been the best of friends. When Nimoy passed away this year, Shatner was heartbroken, and was photographed with tears streaming down his face shortly before Tweeting ” “I loved him like a brother. We will all miss his humor, his talent, and his capacity to love.” Now that he’s had some time to grieve, Shatner decided to take it upon himself to put together a tribute for his dearly departed friend. He tweeted to his fanbase with a special request – and what he did with their images will bring a tear to your eye.
