Movie to honor ‘Spock’ Friday

Kohola Leo (Whale Voice) will present the movie, “Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home,” at 7 p.m. Friday at the Kapaa Library as a honor to the late Leonard Nimoy.

It is free.

The two-hour, 1986 film is Nimoy’s Oscar-nominated sci-fi adventure. Set in the 23rd century, a mysterious power is threatening Earth by evaporating the oceans and destroying the atmosphere. To save mankind, Capt. Kirk (William Shatner), Dr. McCoy (DeForest Kelley) and the rest of the Starship Enterprise crew travel back in time to 1986 San Francisco, a world as alien to them as anything they’ve encountered in their travels through the galaxy.

Nimoy starred as Spock on the TV series, Star Trek, from 1966 to 1969 and went on to other film roles and projects. His character of Spock was named by TV Guide as one of the 50 greatest TV characters.

He died Feb. 27. He was 83.
