Before Star Trek turned William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy into Kirk and Spock, the actors had already met on another 1960s TV show.
One of the pairs that defined the decade of the 60s on television is the one made up of William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy, who played Captain Kirk and Spock respectively in the Star Trek series.

Despite the fact that Kirk and Spock were the leaders of one of the programs that has garnered the most followers in over 50 years, Star Trek is not the first work that brings together William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy.
Before Star Trek, there was a program called The Man From UNCLE, known in Latin America as El Agente de CIPOL, a program broadcast on NBC (in Mexico on channel 4 of Telesistema Mexicano, today Televisa).
This program starred Robert Vaughn in the role of Napoleon Solo. Years later Vaughn played the villain Ross Webster in Superman III.
