Leonard Nimoy, the honorary philosopher-king of the Star Trek
franchise and, along with William Shatner, one of the most recognizable figures in science fiction today, has commented on the performances of the actors who now embody the bridge crew of the new Enterprise. Of special interest is his comment about the new Leonard "Bones" McCoy:
