William Shatner has revealed that he wants to write about book about his friendship with Leonard Nimoy, his co-star in Star Trek. Nimoy passed away in February. He was 83 years old.

Shatner, 84, said at Comic Con in Dubai, “I’ve been asked to write a book about it, and I think I will.”

“Leonard and I knew each other for many, many years and one of the aspects of having a long relationship is, you validate the memories [you share]. ‘Do you remember when we kicked the tire of the car?’ But the two of you would validate each other. ‘Yeah, that was fun, but you had to be there,’ ” he told reporters on April 10. “When someone dies that is a friend of yours, all those memories begin to shimmer and slide away, because you think, ‘Did we kick that tire or did we not?’ and you have nobody to validate it, and gradually the memories evaporate.”

“That’s one of the tragedies of a friend of yours dying,” he added. “Friendship has multi-levels of meanings – old friendships, particularly. That’s the area I would examine in the book.”

Shatner also revealed that he plans on helping Adam, Nimoy’s son, with the documentary he is making on his father. It is called For The Love Of Spock.
