Leonard Nimoy as Spock in Star Trek

Leonard Nimoy is an American actor best known for playing the half-Vulcan Spock on Star Trek in movies and on television. Sheldon is obsessed with Nimoy as a result of his obsession with Spock.

Sheldon's ObsessionEdit

In "The Bath Item Gift Hypothesis" (S02E11), Penny presented Sheldon with a napkin signed by Leonard Nimoy when she saw him in the Cheesecake Factory. Sheldon was overjoyed to receiving the napkin as a Christmas gift from Penny, and overwhelmed on learning the napkin contained Nimoy's DNA. Sheldon briefly mulled the notion of cloning Nimoy, but Penny declined Sheldon's implicit request for a "healthy ovum". The episode concludes with a Saturnalia miracle, a never-seen-before "Sheldon Hug".

In "The Excelsior Acquisition" (S03E16), Sheldon revealed that he had a restraining order from Leonard Nimoy after receiving a restraining order from Stan Lee.
