First saw him in a 1950s episode of "Twilight Zone". And that was probably the last time I saw him smiling "in character."

"Classic Star Trek" helped define my generation. It was a hopeful, promising Future amid all the carnage of VietNam, and the deaths of John and Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King, the Manson murders, and endless marches and protests.

He made it "cool" to be a hybrid, "always a child of 2 worlds," like those of us who were "into Science Fiction". And Spock also made Thinking Logically the default setting for solving Life's Problems - not hysteria or violence.

I'd like to think I still carry a bit of Spock in my heart and mind. As for the actor who lived and breathed that brilliant and nuanced character, now you truly know the truth about "Space, the Final Frontier."

Peace.



A scared GI, Hansen-- all the way from "The Quality of Mercy" up
to a Super Bowl commercial; we were shown what a great actor
does, and now was. He was a class performer, always and first.

I don't think there's anybody checking in today whose life hasn't been
positively affected by him. Some of us won't even make it to their
home page password to leave anything for him.

But I did. "This, Jim...THIS!" If you don't get the scene where he said it
it's OK. You'll do the job yourself someday like he did, everybody must.
A loved one has evolved: a sad emptiness lingers. Most illogical.

Spock is the cornerstone of my journey into Sci-fi and the uneXplained and if it wasn't for him and Roddenberry I would probably not even be a member of ATS.

RIP Mr Nimoy, my children are part of the next generation ready to keep your memory alive.

He was always one of my favorite Star Trek characters.

Kirk said it best at the end of The Wrath of Khan. "Of all the souls I have encountered, his was the most human."

God speed, Mr. Spock.

I suggest watching "Star Trek III: The Search for Spock" I just finished it moments ago. Truly this is a sad day. Spock will live on forever, who could ever forget him..........

RIP Leonard Nimoy, you have been immortalized within the culture of mankind and will inspire many generations to come.

Coincidentally I was on a Star Trek TOS binge just a few weeks ago, watched almost every episode, here is one of my favorites. @5:55 is the most cool delivery of the word "fascinating" I have ever heard.


Spock, the Federations most devastating weapon!


Morgan Freeman took a back seat to Nimoy when it came to narrative prowess IMO.

I already posted on page 6 and bid farewell to one of the greatest science fiction actors of all time.

Due to this I created a new word.
"spocalyptic " The death of a legend. Peace and Good will ATS!

Priceless!

Just as it was a priceless rivalry, I myself know of no equal. Thank you both for the reminder. ~$heopleNation

I didn't want to believe it when I read the news... He was a great man, a legend, and will be missed. RIP

Only last month, I watched the first three Star Trek films - and for the very *first time. I did not expect to be so enamoured by them; and I attribute that solely to Leonard Nimoy's portrayal of Mr. Spock. His essence and screen charisma in that role is one that I will not soon forget.

Prior to watching these films, I was also acquainted with his profound talent for photography and poetry. What a wonderful gift and legacy to the world, his many talents have been.

R.I.P. Mr. Nimoy/Spock


*I know, I know - what took me so long right?! I admittedly have an inexplicable aversion to Mr. Shatner, that limited my interest in exploring the Star Trek films; however I am very glad that I finally did.

A most fitting quote!

Rest in peace Mr. Nimoy. You entertained us all. Prosper in the cosmos and say hi to Gene for us all.

R.I.P Mr Nimoy. He lived long and prospered.

I ran his chart... I don't know his exact time of birth so it's not super accurate, but these charts never are anyway.

We are of the opinion that if he wasn't "there" already, he's probably earned a free pass to just kinda hang out and keep teaching us for awhile, in whatever form that may take on. We can only hope so.

Love and light, on and up to a great spirit!
