Gum card, Spock photo ????

Unzipped shirt, Behind the scenes? Don't remember the episode that this occurred in?? The back of the card mentions Trelane but I don't think this scene is in that episode?

Well, it's obviously a production still as the angle clearly shows above the set walls into the sound stage ceiling. Also, there was never a scene where Spock's tunic was unzipped. It is an interesting photo, though.

Can't quite tell if we're seeing Nimoy's bare shoulder or the lining of the shirt. I don't suppose those T-shirts were sleeveless?

Thanks for posting this rare image. It's definitely a still. I would guess that his tunic was unzipped when not shooting a scene because (as Shatner once mentioned) the collars were itchy.

It's a sleeveless black undershirt. There are pics of Shatner wearing one.

Another card, titled "Spock in Command", (BTS from WNMHGB?) again with his shirt open

They must have taken these during rehearsals. If they were posed photos, he'd surely have zipped his collar up.

Anyone remember the scene in the 1978 Battlestar Galactica pilot when Starbuck and Boomer undid their uniform shirts to reveal the Velcro holding them together? It may have been "space-age" technology then, but now it looks incredibly cheesy.

Are you sure? It looks like the material from the flap and not skin. Plus we see Spock in a t-shirt in "The Naked Time" when he returns from the surface of Psi200.

I'm pretty sure Nimoy is wearing a roughly cut, sleeveless black undershirt issued to the cast by Bill Theiss and not meant to be seen.

I think the photogenic short-sleeve T-shirts in that "Naked Time" scene were just for show, meant to be seen in that shot. They could not be worn on an ongoing basis because you'd start seeing undershirt sleeve-lines across the actors' upper arms. Hence the tank tops.

If you look closely at the top of Nimoy's left shoulder in that first photo, you'll see the black fabric goes higher than the white area, which is Nimoy's skin.

De Forest Kelley also wore a black T Shirt in 'Man Trap'.
But I can't recall seeing Shatner wearing one on screen.

I think this is part of the uniform, not Nimoy's skin.



But I could be wrong.

Nope. He wanted to show off his shaved pecs.

Apparently Roddenberry wanted the shaved chest look, wonder what the thinking was? Any man who has tried this will tell you it results in a lot of itchiness

Anyway, some great pics here guys. I still can't believe new photos are turning up after all these years

My understanding is that the choice of the hairless look was Shatner's. He wanted the same look he achieved in his role as Alexander The Great in the 1964 television pilot Alexander The Great.
