Leonard Nimoy and Zach Quinto
It's Spock vs. Spock in the new ad for Audi.
In the clip, Leonard Nimoy, who originated the character in the Star Trek film and TV franchise, and Zachary Quinto, who plays a younger version in the reboot, go head-to-head in chess. After Nimoy beats Quinto, Quinto challenges the actor to a round of golf. But while Quinto's journey in his Audi is seamless, speedy and high tech, Nimoy can barely fit his clubs in the trunk of his Mercedes.
In the second part of our farewell to Fringe, producers and cast discuss the introduction of the parallel universe, which opened up the world of Fox's sci-fi drama to new and exciting possibilities, including a new set of characters with names like Walternate and Bolivia that fans would — gasp! — actually come to love in the end...
Fringe kicked off the final day at Comic-Con Sunday with a crowd full of Observers — at least it looked that way with more than 6,000 fans donning Fringe fedoras. They gathered to celebrate the tearful final panel for the Fox sci-fi series, which will say farewell at the end of its upcoming fifth season.

While the cast and executive producer J.H. Wyman were very coy about teasing the final season, a new pre-filmed trailer...
How happy am I not to be preparing a eulogy for Fringe this weekend, instead celebrating another audacious year of emotionally compelling sci-fi thrills with a grand season, not series, finale (Friday at 9/8c, Fox).
Thank goodness we know that Fringe has been renewed for another season. Otherwise this new preview for the season finale would have us seriously worried.
VIDEO: Will two worlds become one in the Fringe finale?
In the two minute-long, movie-like trailer — a shorter version debuted last week — William Bell (Leonard Nimoy) details his megalomaniacal plan to collapse the two universes in order to create a new one — which looks a lot like a scene from Jurassic Park. Will the Fringe team survive this disaster? Will Olivia (Anna Torv) avoid her fate? And what is the backward voice at the end of the trailer saying? (Some eager tweeters have already guessed "It is impossible.")
Watch below and decide for yourself:
Awww, hell no. You do not hurt Astrid. Uh huh. We gon' be in a fight unless y'all fix this fast.
If you missed the first half of Fringe's season finale last Friday night, you missed A) a thrilling hour, and B) a really upsetting twist. While trying to escape a warehouse filled with God knows what, Astrid The Beloved and Walter the Best ran afoul of some gun-toting goons who were actually doing the bidding of bad, bad William Bell, and Agent Farnsworth took what looked like a pretty damn fatal bullet. Yeah, seeing Leonard Nimoy again was a thrill (although his return, set up in the 2036-set "Letters of Transit," was spoiled by the opening credits), but having him back is not worth losing Astrid.
Only one world will survive in the Fringe season finale.
In the two-hour episode, airing on May 11, David Robert Jones (Jared Harris) will try to destroy the two universes to create a new one that he'll control. And from the looks of it in the trailer below, William Bell (Leonard Nimoy) is alive and helping him.
