Ahead of next week’s release of the newly restored Star Trek: The Original 4-Movie Collection on 4K Blu-ray, Paramount has released a video featuring Captain Kirk himself, William Shatner discussing the phenomenal success of the Star Trek franchise along with his professional and personal relationship with the late Leonard Nimoy.

In the video, Shatner talks about the lasting impact Star Trek has had on pop culture and entertainment, saying:

“This effect that Star Trek has had is beyond my ability to imagine. There’s nothing like it in show business. I don’t understand this phenomenon.”

He goes on to discuss his relationship with Star Trek‘s original Spock, the iconic Leonard Nimoy who passed away in 2015:

“Leonard was my dearest friend. I love Leonard Nimoy. We had success, envy, anger, love, passion. I loved Leonard as my dearest brother. When he died, a part of me died.”
