Mr. Spock to Appear with the Boston Pops

William Shatner’s music career has been well documented, beginning with his The Transformed Man album back in 1968.  After a long hiatus, Captain Kirk’s musical output has become rather prolific over the last decade or so. Perhaps inspired by that, Mr. Spock is getting back into music, too.

While The Shat’s discography is well known, few seem to remember that Leonard Nimoy had quite a recording career of his own, releasing five albums on the Dot label, a subsidiary of Paramount Pictures, the home of Star Trek.

Nimoy hasn’t released an album since 1970.  But now he’s back with a series of live performances entitled Out of This World With Leonard Nimoy with the Boston Pops on May 23 and 24.  I quote:  “Patrons sit at cabaret-style tables and order food and drink with family and friends, all while taking in the fun-filled atmosphere of music and entertainment presented by the one and only Boston Pops.”

So what’s on the setlist?  “Music inspired by outer space.”  What did you expect?  More details can be found at Trek Today.  (Yes, that’s a real website.)
