In many ways, Nimoy's portrayal of Spock was the reason I managed to become the person I am today.


I feel about like how Shatner acted in this clip right now.

Told my mom, she likes Star Trek. She found it sad and started naming (by character) all the main originals who are gone.

Nimoy had more positive impact on more people than most politicians, religious leaders, etc. At a time when l was surrounded by irrational, violent, addicted adults, his portrayal of Spock inspired me to think critically, survive hardships and to become better than my environment. Spock is as made up as any god, and far more worthy of reverence. Nobody kills anyone over Spock.

I hope we will do a tribute at the next comicon.

I am grateful for what he shared and helped build; he will be missed.

My regards and thanks, Leonard Nimoy.

I wonder if The Big Bang Theory will do a tribute episode since Sheldon's character loved Leonard Nimoy?

I was thinking the same thing, but it will be awkward, as they just dealt with the death of the woman who played Howard's mom, Carol Ann Susi.  I'm also pretty sure that next Thursday's episode has been filmed, so maybe we'll see it the week after.
The Bible is one of the select few books that is wholly deserving of being burned.

They took a little longer on that than I expected though she was 62 when she died, and it was probably unexpected. Of course they probably have the next few episodes already written.

Maybe a rewrite with a mention.

In a trend dubbed "Spocking," Canadians have taken to drawing pointy ears and tiled brows on top of Canada's seventh prime minister, Sir. Wilfrid Laurier, to make him look like Mr. Spock, the half-Vulcan, half-human Star Trek character made famous by Nimoy.
