Quinto, who is currently reprising his role as Spock for Star Trek 3, sent Dunham a warm greeting, which she couldn't help but share on Wednesday.


"I received the warmest Vulcan greeting from my beloved @zacharyquinto," the Girls creator explained in her caption. "Congrats on your return to the enterprise! #RIPNimoy."

Dunham received overwhelming support for the photo.

"There are just way too many things I love right here," one commenter said.

Another added, "Our heroes in one photo."

Quinto has also been sharing photos from his first day back on the set for his third Star Trek installment.


And while he has the eyebrows down, he still needs the ears to complete his Vulcan transformation.

Quinto and Dunham bonded during Girls Season 4 when the actor made an epic guest appearance as Mimi-Rose's ex, Ace.

"I just love her through and through," Quinto gushed to the Huffington Post. "I think she's so insightful and observant and intelligent and articulate, and that show captures so much of that generation, and I feel like I'm even a little bit separated from that generation of people who are a decade or more younger than me now, but it was great to be a part of it."

It looks like Quinto and Dunham's bond was so solid, the two have decided to keep in touch even after filming. We hope it leads to more Star Trek sneak peeks as filming ramps up.
