Nimoy, who appeared in the "Star Trek" feature film in 2009, also declared he will not be in the sequel to that movie.
“I’ve been doing this professionally for 60 years. I love the idea of going out on a positive note. I’ve had a great, great time," said Nimoy.
In addition to acting, the 79-year-old Nimoy has also been a successful director, including the credits "Three Men and a Baby" and "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home."
