Nimoy: Obama is a Star Trek Fan
Actor Leonard Nimoy and his frequent mode of transportation.
Space.com reports that actor Leonard Nimoy said Barack Obama is a Star Trek fan and he generally supports the President's space policy proposal.
"I do believe that President Obama means it when he says that he is 100 percent interested in space," Nimoy told reporters. "I know for sure he's a Star Trek fan," he said, because the first time the two men met, President Obama made Spock's traditional V-shaped finger spread.
Nimoy said he didn't feel qualified to speak to the merits of the president's new plan for space, but that it sounded like a positive direction.
"All-in-all I'm looking forward," he said. "I hope it's going to work out for the best."
