Nichelle Nichols, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, George Takei, James Doohan and Walter Koenig celebrate the filming of Star Trek III.
I’d never seen this behind-the-scenes photo of Leonard Nimoy during the filming of Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home before, but I liked it so much I had to buy it.
For no reason at all, here are a bunch of random publicity, press and behind-the-scenes photos of Walter Koenig as Chekov. I believe the final one featured may have been part of the casting process for his character.
Miscellaneous press, publicity and behind-the-scenes photos, Star Trek IV.
(Wondering who that kid in the second photo is? Originally, he was cast to be Sulu’s ever-so-great grandfather in a scene that was cut after Harve Bennett and Leonard Nimoy saw the dailies. The poor boy’s nervousness was apparently very evident. There’s another photo of him here.)
Press and publicity photos for Star Trek III, featuring Dame Judith Anderson as T’Lar. The Austrialian-born actress had made a name for herself over a 70-year career with stage and film roles as varied as Macbeth and Otto Preminger’s thriller Laura. Her role as T’Lar was a distinct effort to break away from the Shakespearean and stage roots that had defined her career to that point. Soon after Star Trek III wrapped, she joined the cast of the NBC soap Santa Barbara.
Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, German lobby card. 1984

I’ve purchased a few of the American lobby cards from this film, but there’s something about the phrase “Auf Der Suche Nach Mr. Spock” that makes me want to get the German ones a bit more.
The cast, director and and producers of Star Trek III pose. Note Gene Roddenberry in the back, between Nimoy and Kelley. This would be one of his very few visits to the Star Trek film sets after Harve Bennett’s (far left) shepherding of the film series proved to be financially successful for Paramount.
