Looking forward to some really good specials, I hope something real nice is done in Hollywood in memoriam.

Not many better people to watch , amazing character.

I believe he and Shatner were born within days of each other.

I think it's a mistake to only remember Leonard Nimoy as "Spock". Yes, he played one of the iconic roles in what is arguably the most iconic science fiction TV show (Cut me some slack here, Whovians!
), but he was also a poet, musician, writer, director and producer. He was also, by all accounts, a good (if not perfect) man, and God knows, we have an ongoing shortage of those.

I'm also going to take the liberty of editing his famous phrase...he lived long, and because of him, we *all* prospered.

He's in a MUCH better place than all of us useless souls whom are still trapped here on Earth...

Congrats Nimoy for getting the hell out of this place... I know you will now live long and prosper wherever you are.

Star Trek was the first tv show I watched that led me to believe that there could be a better way to go about dealing with other cultures and beliefs. Mr. Spock was the first extraterrestrial who got me interested in life beyond our own. It was because of him that , that at a young age, I would look at the stars and say "what if"? Thank you Mr. Spock for that.
RIP

I must admit, that while we all have our day. This news did tug at my heart
and bring a few tears. It's odd to have someone you don't know personally,
but still consider them a friend. Leonard you represented a kind soul who
maintained logic perfectly. You lived long and prospered. Damn, guess I'm a
treky after all. You will be missed.



Thanks OP, SnF

I didn't even watch the StarTrek TNG until 10 years it was off the air I was such a Star Trek original fan, and I have seen everyone of them a 1/2 dozen each.

Thank you for starting this thread. I am floored by his passing. He was an important figure in my life and it feels like I have lost someone I knew.

Is there a memorial book to sign online?

Fly High Lenard.

I am not one who is usually saddened by celebrity deaths. Death is inevitable at this stage in human history and plenty of less famous people pass away every second of every day (please don't hate me for saying this, it's logical and Spock would approve of this statement), however.....

I really was struck by Leonard Nimoy's passing. I started to cry.

I grew up watching Star Trek The Next Generation and the Star Trek movie franchise which of course caused me to go back and watch the original series which my mom and dad watched and loved.

I can't help but think that what Star Trek and what Leonard Nimoy's science officer character Spock represented had an impact on me at an impressionable age and further helped cement the idea in my mind to become an astronomer to perhaps seek out strange new worlds and help to create the maps of the nearby star systems ala Star Trek's stellar cartography.

If you ask most astronomers, astrophysicists, astronauts, etc you will find many were influenced by sci fi and Star Trek tops that list for many.

Real life imitating art....


Leonard Nimoy's Spock character being half Human and half Vulcan really represented the two sides of humanity and human potential.

Leonard Nimoy's real life involved him being one of the nicest people, a man of peace, incredibly open and truly an inspiration to all who want to make this world a better place so that the Earth envisioned by Gene Roddenberry in Star Trek can become a reality.

R.I.P Mr. Nimoy, you lived long and prospered. May us all.

This is the best tribute I can post to honour the memory of Leonard Nimoy , Shatner and Nimoy bounce of each other like a great comic duo , they're obviously having a ball








Legends live forever.

I'm unable to upload the picture, but apparently astronaut Terry W. Virts, aboard the ISS, gave Mr. Nimoy a "Vulcan Salute" from space. I would venture to say that it's a fitting salute.


Leonard Nimoy, who died at 83, gets Vulcan hand salute from Space Station


Much respect for Mr. Nimoy who gave many years of inspiration.
