I thought Nimoy was on Fringe after Trek XI?
I checked it. You're right of course... by exactly four days. ST09 premiered on May 8, 2009 and Nimoy's first appearance on Fringe was on May 12, 2009. (Probably not a coincidence).
Yes, but Nimoy filmed his Trek XI material in 2007, possibly early 2008, while his first Fringe episode would have likely been filmed winter 2009.

Of relevance to this thread, I think Nimoy was Peter Weller's acting mentor or something back when Weller was in acting school. I remember Weller mentioning it in an interview done around the time he guest starred on Enterprise.
