As a 10 year old child I went with my mother, myself and my 7 year old brother went to EJ Korvette's on 46th Street to meet an alien. Well, actually it was Leonard Nimoy (in full makeup and costume) as Mr. Spock. It was 1969 and he had just come out with his new album Mr Spock's Music From Outer Space.
We were in a crush of people. My brother was having trouble with the crowd. The store was packed. Finally my mother snapped and dragged us out of the store screaming, "My son is suffocating, get out of the way!"
Anyway, after hysteria by yours truly, we went back. The crowd was gone. Someone took the album from my hands and sliced the covering plastic with a razor. I didn't care. I was looking up at Mister SPOCK from my favoite show of all times!
I wanted to say something, anything. But my throat was dry. My brain useless. He signed the album. He signed it... Spock in cursive.
I still have this album today.
Is it worth anything? Other than my memories and the original price? Leonard. I love your photos. Call me...

Many years ago I was given a box of odd DOS software on 5 1/4 disks. One of them had a Star Treck game whose object was for the player to assume the role of captain Kirk and issue commands to the crew members in the correct star Treck manner. While I had enjoyed the show, I was not familiar enough with the program to play the part of Kirk. Just to see what would happen, I told Spock to go do an anatomical impossibility and was immediately relieved of command and placed in the brig. The disk has been lost. What was this game and where can I get a working copy?
