I Am Spock is an 1995 autobiography written by Leonard Nimoy. It's the continuation of his first autobiography, published in 1975, which was titled I Am Not Spock (which named a trope regarding actors being confused with their roles way too many times), which was written back when Nimoy was trying to distance himself of his character in Star Trek to avoid Typecasting. Nimoy write this in an attempt to cast off the absurd idea he hated the character, an impression that people who saw said title but didn't actually read the first volume had.
- Dude, Not Funny: Gene Roddenberry liked to play practical jokes, some of which fell squarely into this trope according to Nimoy.
- Pungeon Master: William Shatner was this to him in the dressing room at times, to his frustrated amusement.
- Pigeonholed Director: Admitted frequent attempts to avert this trope.
- Loony Fan: He recalled a story of a very disturbing stalker during his Star Trek days.
- Set Right What Once Went Wrong: The entire thing was his attempt to dispel the notion he did not like playing Spock.
