The Boston native who lived long and prospered as Spock in the “Star Trek” television show and movies is being honored by his hometown chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

Leonard Nimoy is scheduled to receive the Governors’ Award at the Boston/New England Emmy Awards ceremony on June 7.

The honor was announced Wednesday.

The now 83-year-old Nimoy began playing the half-human, half-alien, Spock on the television series in 1966. He also played Spock in six movies.

He grew up in Boston’s West End, where he performed on stage from the age of 8 through his teens before setting out for Hollywood.

The Governors’ Award is given in recognition of achievements which do not fall within the structure of the chapter’s regular awards.  (Associated Press)
