As you probably know, Spock — Leonard Nimoy — died this week. Now, the man perhaps most associated with him, William Shatner, aka Captain Kirk, is answering questions about his friend on Twitter.

“Which of the original #Star Trek movies was his personal favorite,” Twitter user @GeekToMeRadio asked Shatner. In his typical sharp wit, Kirk responded, “I would imagine the one he directed.”

For the record, Nimoy actually directed two Star Trek films: 1984’s Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, and 1986’s Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home.

Another fan asked what was Nimoy’s most admirable quality. To which Shatner answered, in all earnestness, “His compassion and dedication.”

It’s not clear how long Shatner will be doing this, but if you’ve got a burning question to ask about Spock or anything else Star Trek, now would be the time to send your question to @WilliamShatner.
