Starlog Archives: Leonard Nimoy Piloting “The Voyage Home”
Last week, I commented that in 1977, Starlog magazine was primarily concerned with Star Trek. For the next several years, the publication would be dominated by Star Wars, but here we are ten years later and the cover story is once again about Star Trek. By 1987, Star Wars had faded in relevance whereas Star Trek, while never as popular as George Lucas’ creation, was still going strong.
In this issue, Leonard Nimoy discusses directing his second Star Trek feature. Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home was actually released in 1986 and it became the most successful of the original Star Trek films – the first ever to gross over $100 million dollars. Nimoy would go on to direct the smash hit comedy, Three Men and a Baby which would be released later in 1987.
