The end of an era is coming to a close.
I know that Leonard Nimoy went into retirement, but came out briefly for JJ Abrams to do the Star Trek movie and Fringe.
I would of loved to have gone to that convention if it was his last one.
But I guess it is time to go back into retirement. I also know he does comic books and photography, I wonder if he will continue those.
He is 80. I think it is ok now.



Nimoy has said the convention in suburban Chicago celebrating the 45th anniversary of "Star Trek" would be his last.

He spoke for an hour about his life and career, and thanked fans for their support over the years. Some held signs saying: "We love you Leonard! Live long & prosper."

Live long and prosper to Mr. Nimoy.

Actually a pretty talented singer as well, if you didn't know .

It would be logical for him to wind things down at the human age of 80.
Was really pleased to see him in the JJ Abrams Star Trek movie though.
And I'm not even a Trekkie.
OK maybe a closet Trekkie!
May the Force be with him!

I remember a song he sang from one of the Star Trec episodes called Bitter Dregs

Mr Spock will live on in the hearts of us Trekkies - truly a unique man, actor, and personality.
He did a great job as Sentinal Prime in the most recent Transformer movie, IMHO...up:


Alas, the needs of the one outweigh the needs of the many...

I hope he gets to enjoy a long and healthy retirement.

Leonard Nimoy did great voicework, too. And was one of my favorite documentary narrators (I watch a lot of docs.)

If you ask me he doesn't look a day over 60.

I remember that.

He has a few youtube vids of some actual recordings he made, I'm at work and can't pull them up, but worth checking out.

Leonard Nimoy is one of the finest contributors to human society in modern times. Ranging from Entertainment, Philosophy, Art and literature. He is a truly wonderful individual who has inspired generations. It's always a delight hearing about him. I am glad he is taking a rest from it all and maybe he will pop out for us fans and admirers of his life and body of work from time to time.

He does do a lot. I have always admired how he is humble about it too.

Don't you dare force me to post that Bilbo Baggins video...fair warning!



All props to a good actor, and from most accounts, a great guy. (and fellow interested person in the unexplained)....

Please, not the Bilbo Baggins video.


I thought he was pretty good on Mission Impossible too. And he did voice work on the computer game Civilization IV.

Very talented. Let's just leave it at that. He's very talented.
