Nimoy, who will be appearing as himself, reaches out to Sheldon to agree to take part in a documentary he’s making about his famous father.
Here’s a full synopsis for the episode from CBS:
In “The Spock Resonance,” recurring guest star Wil Wheaton will appear alongside Adam, an accomplished writer and director in real life, who asks Sheldon Cooper to be in a documentary about his beloved father, Leonard.
While being interviewed, Sheldon struggles to suppress his emotions about his recent break-up with Amy, despite his overwhelming excitement for the sci-fi subject matter.
Nimoy, who died earlier this year, never actually appeared on the show himself but was frequently referenced by the Star Trek-obsessed characters. He did, however, voice a Spock action figure in one episode and the show also paid tribute to him upon his death.
