Nimoy May Be the Star of the Next Trek Film?

YogSothoth Re:Hmm. (248 comments)

Hey Wombat,

      As far as I know, this is the scoop on the neck pinch ...

      It was invented for the episode "The Enemy Within" by Leonard Nimoy, who felt that Spock was too dignified to render someone unconscious by striking them over the head with the butt of a phaser.

This comes from Memory Alpha but I recall reading the same explanation 20+ years ago so I think it's likely the correct one.
