Star Trek’s Zachary Quinto discovers spooky Spock link in his ancestry & how his relative may be behind famous saying

STAR Trek's Zachary Quinto has discovered a spooky connection to his Spock character while studying his ancestry.

Quinto explored his heritage on the new season of the NBC show, Who Do You Think You Are?, and learned of a connection between his character and his great-grandfather.

Quinto played Spock in the 2009 Star Trek film.

He went on to play the character again in Star Trek Into Darkness in 2012 and also in 2016's Star Trek Beyond.

On the NBC show, Quinto explored his heritage, including his great-grandfather, P.J. McArdle.

In researching McArdle, Quinto learned of a letter that his great-grandfather wrote in 1899 to the editor of The Amalgamated Journal.

McArdle used a phrase that Star Trek fans will recognize - and one that is synonymous with Quinto's Spock character.

In the letter, McArdle wrote: "May it live long and prosper."

The quote is shockingly similar to Spock's "Love long and prosper."

Quinto's episode of the show airs tonight at 7pm ET on NBC and is also available to stream on Peacock.
