Quite exciting news for Star Trek Online,
Leonard Nimoy has signed on to do voice-overs for the character "Spock" in several key portions of the game. His younger counter-part will still be played by Zachary Quinto (young Spock from the new Star Trek Movie).

In this game, the essence of Star Trek -- exploration and adventure -- lives long and prospers. I'm pleased that a whole new generation of fans will be able to discover new frontiers in the Star Trek universe."
