Nimoy did occasional work as a voice actor in animated feature films, including the character of Galvatron in The Transformers: The Movie in 1986.
.In 1991, Nimoy teamed up with Robert Radnitz to produce a movie for TNT about a pro bono publico lawsuit brought by public interest attorney William John Cox on behalf of Mel Mermelstein, an Auschwitz survivor, against a group of organizations engaged in Holocaust denial.^ The first of these books was called, "Why Not You and I?" In 1991, Nimoy starred in and produced the film, "Never Forget," for the Turner Network, which deals with a true case of a Holocaust survivor suing a neo-Nazi organization who claimed the extermination of Jews in World War II was a myth.

^ Synopsis: In this fact-based made-for-cable docudrama, Leonard Nimoy stars as Mel Mermelstein, a Nazi death camp survivor who wages a court battle against the revisionist Institute for Historical Review over their claims that the Holocaust never occurred.

Music career

During and following Star Trek, Nimoy also released five albums of vocal recordings on Dot Records,[13] including Trek-related songs such as "Highly Illogical", and cover versions of popular tunes, such as "Proud Mary". In regards to how his recording career got started, he stated:
Charles Grean of Dot Records had arranged with the studio to do an album of space music based on music from Star Trek, and he has a teenage daughter who's a fan of the show and a fan of Mr. Spock. She said, 'Well, if you're going to do an album of music from Star Trek, then Mr. Spock should be on the album.' So Dot contacted me and asked me if I would be interested in either speaking or singing on the record. .I said I was very interested in doing both.^ LN: I think they're both very interesting characters.

In May 2009, he made an appearance as the mysterious Dr. William Bell in the season finale of Fringe, which explore the existence of a parallel universe. Nimoy returned as Dr. Bell in the fall for an extended arc, and according to Roberto Orci, co-creator of Fringe, Bell will be "the beginning of the answers to even bigger questions."[18][19] This choice led one reviewer to question if Fringe's plot might be a homage to the Star Trek episode "Mirror, Mirror", which featured an alternate reality "Mirror Universe" concept and an evil version of Spock distinguished by a goatee.[20]
