According to an article that ran in Movie World in January 1969, Mr. Nimoy appeared on a local Boston TV station in a show called Contact in which his parents and a Boston fan were present who ran her own "Save Star Trek" campaign.
As the producers of Contact laid their plans for Nimoy's appearance on the show, they realized they needed a lot of information. Not wishing to disturb his elderly parents, they turned to Sharon and called her as often as two or three times a day. Sharon loved it! All those magazines she had saved were paying off.
The day of the show arrived. A gang of fans flocked to greet Leonard Nimoy when he arrived at Boston's Logan Airport, but Sharon wasn't there. She was too busy getting ready for the TV cameras, and, needless to say, very tense and nervous. Her sister Marcy helped her set up the displays, and Leonard's old friends whom she had, told the TV producers about arrived. All was in readiness—but where was the star?
Sharon was in a state of near panic when Leonard finally arrived, stalled by the crush of fans enthusiastically thrusting almost anything under his nose for his signature.
During the show's warmup period, Leonard put Sharon at her ease immediately by behaving as if the telecast were an everyday occurrence for her as well as for him. He chatted with her about school and her piano practicing. By the time the show went on the air, everything didn't seem so frightening. "It didn't feel like people looking at you, just cameras, "Sharon explains. She went on to show the TV audience her scrapbooks and posters, and most of all, to ask them to join in her. petition to save Star Trek from its undeserved fate.
Leonard was delighted by his loyal fan. He got a kick out of her telling the people that his favorite food was kreplach, a Jewish dough-like food delicacy stuffed with either meat or cheese. To top things off, his mother, who was also on the show, then announced not only had she made some for him to sample on the show but enough for everyone in the studio audience to taste as well. Moreover, Leonard was mighty pleased to see the old pals Sharon had rounded up, some of whom he had not seen for twenty years! They all kidded each other unmercifully and agreed Leonard hadn't really changed at all.
After the show ended, Sharon and Marcy accompanied Leonard on his personal appearances at suburban department stores that day and felt tremendously when some fans recognized them from the TV show.

Leonard Nimoy explains the Spock Pinch
Shortly after the cancellation of Star Trek in 1969, Leonard Nimoy chats with CBC-TV host Barbara Frum.
Watch the video here.
"When the Space Shuttle Enterprise made its final landing at New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport, it was greeted by a special guest: Leonard Nimoy.
The Star Trek actor and director gave an emotional speech to welcome the spaceship, which bears the same name as the starship that was home to Nimoy’s character, Mr. Spock. Saying that seeing Enterprise again was a “reunion” for him, he recounted the story of how the NASA orbiter got its name.
Back in the 1970s, when plans for the Space Shuttle program were progressing toward building prototype ships, the first ship was supposed to be named Constitution. However, fans of the original Star Trek started a letter-writing campaign to President Ford, asking him to change the name to Enterprise.
He did, or rather, he directed NASA to do so. Then, in a gala dedication ceremony on Sept. 17, 1976, which included Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry and most of the original cast as guests, Enterprise was officially unveiled at Rockwell’s plant in Palmdale, Calif.
Designed as a test vehicle, Enterprise sadly never flew in space. It lacked many key systems (such as main engines) for journeys to space, although the design made it possible to add those later. In 1986, after the Space Shuttle Challenger was destroyed, NASA briefly considered refitting Enterprise for spaceflight, but it opted instead to construct Space Shuttle Endeavour.
Now the Enterprise has made its final flight, and Nimoy was once again present — seeming to look at it with deep emotion at one point (you can see that moment in pic No. 4 in the gallery below). While that may not have been in keeping with his Star Trek alter ego, his final words to Enterprise as it prepared for its permanent exhibit at New York’s Intrepid museum were more characteristic of Mr. Spock: 'Live long and prosper.'"

Star Trek actor Leonard Nimoy was among the hundreds in attendance at John F. Kennedy International Airport when the Space Shuttle Enterprise flew in atop a 747 jumbo jet this morning. Enterprise was flown in from Washington, D.C., to New York City, where it will eventually be on exhibit at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum in Manhattan. Nimoy spoke about the naming of the orbiter, which was built as a prototype for NASA's reusable spaceship fleet. Enterprise never reached space but its test flights in the late 1970s helped pave the way for future orbiters in the Shuttle program. (Video by Andre Malok / The Star-Ledger)" Video at nj.com

Channel Canada aired a documetary exploring Sex + Religion Sep. 20th, through Dec. 27th, 2010. Information about the schedule and contents of the individual episodes can be found here. Use is made of Mr. Nimoy's Shekhina photographs to illustrate the synopses. Excerpts with Mr. Nimoy can be found on the R.Michelson Galleries webpage. A review here at the Vancouver Sun.
“Art is about illumination,” says Leonard Nimoy whose photographs of female bodies superimposed with the Hebrew letter Shin represents his interpretation of Shekhina, the female representation of God. Simultaneously erotic, beautiful, and spiritually meaningful, Nimoy explains they were inspired by the ecstatic prayer he witnessed as a youth while attending synagogue services with his Father. “The Torah is loaded with sexuality,” Nimoy says. “It’s not to be viewed in terms of sin, but rather as part of the human condition.” More here.

Leonard Nimoy on the Sgt. Jack Show, WBMG, Channel 42
Sgt. Jack was a TV kid's show local to Birmingham, Alabama. According to Grace, who dug up this little gem, the show could also be watched in Chicago. More information about Sgt. Jack at birminghamrewound.com. Leonard Nimoy must have appeared in 1971 or sometime thereafter, since the show went from a police station set which by 1971 was replaced by a "psychedelic backdrop that definitely showed the influence of the flower power age (and perhaps a few other substances as well)."

In a green room interview on the show's website he makes some straight faced fun of William Shatner's career as a vocal artist when he's asked who's the better singer and says he can't teach the "Vulcan death grip" to anyone in good conscience because it's too dangerous.

"After impulsively touching Leonard Nimoy's ears, I would not besurprised if he asked for a restraining order, restricting me to another galaxy.
But what a delight to meet a childhood crush, a talented, intelligent man, who was just as gracious in person as I had always imagined him to be." (more)
