William Shatner wrote a book dedicated to his friendship with the late Leonard Nimoy, which he discussed this morning on the “Today” show.

“I loved Leonard — we were like brothers,” the actor told Samantha Guthrie.

“We had some disagreements to begin with, and in the end,” Shatner admitted. “But, in between was a brotherhood, and I loved it.”

The two men actually bonded during all of those “Star Trek” conventions — neither of them were particularly thrilled to do the appearances. Unfortunately, they had a falling out towards the end of life; Shatner says he never knew what happened to cause that.

“I sought to find out why — couldn’t,” he said. “I thought whatever it was would blow over, he’d tell me what it was, I would try to make amends or find some common ground — but he died before that could happen.”

“Miss him,” Shatner concluded. Watch the video below.

The book, out now, is called “Leonard: My Fifty-Year Friendship With a Remarkable Man.”
