Nicholas Meyer talked with Off-Ramp about the late Leonard Nimoy. Meyer directed him in the Star Trek movies "The Wrath of Khan" and "The Undiscovered Country" and worked on the screenplay for "The Voyage Home," which Nimoy directed.

"He was an exciting person, I think he was a good person. He was passionate, he was mercurial, he was industrious — God knows. And I also find myself thinking about a line in 'The Wrath of Khan' which was not my line, but somebody else said it and I used it. They were talking about the Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg, and they said, 'He is not dead, as long as we remember him.'"

Leonard Nimoy died today at the age of 83.
