Per UPROXX, one primary example of how difficult William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy’s relationship was on the set of “Star Trek” are the fan letters Nimoy frequently received from female viewers, making Shatner jealous. He also objected to Nimoy’s character Spock having so many answers crucial to the resolution of numerous  storylines, when he felt that the captain should be the one to save the day instead. He was even known to steal some lines from Spock, according to the report.

These instances aren’t just limited to Shatner’s relationship with Nimoy, either. Several other original cast members from the series tell very similar tales, including actors like George Takei, who played Enterprise helmsman Hiraku Sulu, and Nichelle Nichols, who played communications officer Lieutenant Uhura, and almost quit the show because of Shatner’s behavior. Almost every main character from the original “Star Trek” series has a very similar story to tell about Shatner, according to UPROXX. It’s important to note that later in life, Shatner/Kirk and Nimoy/Spock did patch things up. Unfortunately, at the time of Nimoy’s death in 2015, he was (again) no longer speaking to Shatner (via The Hollywood Reporter).
