Besides of press, fans and by-standers, Leonard’s family, his parents and most colleagues from Star Trek were present. The President of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, Bill Welsh, honored Leonard not only for his talents but for his dedications for the local community as well. He emphasizes that Leonard gets involved. Leonard’s list of credits was read by the honorary mayor of Hollywood, Johnny Grant, who as well read numerous well-wishing telegrams. Leonard thanked all the people who have been so supportive. “…There is no way in the world that I could have hoped or possibly even dreamed that a day like this would come in my life…” Smiling he ended with the words: “I find myself in a rather illogical position. My star is on the ground and my head in the stars.”
