When William Shatner asked his Twitter followers on Aug. 1 to send photos of themselves giving the famed Vulcan salute, he wasn't merely testing his social-media influence. No, the "Star Trek" icon had a specific purpose in mind: a tribute to the late Leonard Nimoy.
Shatner said the image has been submitted for consideration for a Guinness World Record, but doesn't say which one.
Nimoy passed away in February at age 83.
