Mr Spock Travels To Vulcan (Alberta) Today
VULCAN, Alta. - "After 44 years, a few generations of TV shows and multiple movies, Mr. Spock is finally making the trek home to Vulcan. Leonard Nimoy, who has played the character since "Star Trek" debuted in 1966, is set to beam in to the tiny Alberta town this afternoon.
He'll lead a parade alongside Mounties and the town's high school band, which will serenade him with songs from the show.
Nimoy will then unveil a bronze bust of Mr. Spock and leave a live-long-and-prosper handprint.
The town of about 1,900 people has based its tourism industry on the fact it shares its name with Spock's birth planet"
Live Long and Prosper!
