In Leonard Nimoy's Filmography, Star Trek the Original Series is listed as lasting from 1966-1986.  As it appears that overlapping entries are listed in order of the ending year, Star Trek TOS appears 20 years later than it should in the Filmography. Taking WiIlliam Shatner's page as a guide, it should be listed as 1966-69.

This is an oddity in terms of IMDb rules, but it's not an error per se. The 1986 episode of "Star Trek" attributed to Nimoy is the show's original pilot, "The Cage", which was not broadcast in its original format until 1986. Thus, Nimoy's Star Trek: TOS episode credits are deemed to have run from 1966 to 1986. 

However, William Shatner, like most of the Star Trek: TOS regulars, did not appear in "The Cage", so the 1986 broadcast of that episode did not extend his run of episodes past the series' regular run from 1966 to 1969.
