Yanno, twenty years ago everyone thought Shatner would've gone first, and he's outliving them all. Genetics is... fascinating.

So Kirk, Uhura, Sulu and Chekov left huh? Not a whole lot left to fly the ship with.

I still do - they're showing the remasters on one of the Freeview channels over here.

A tru-SF icon. LLAP trending like a Tribble on Viagra and not a bad word to be heard about a talented and well loved human being. No Trek = No Firefly, simple as that (or any other decent space based TV series since)

Go boldly Mr Nimoy, go boldly.

Now, where's that Romulan Ale?

As Surak might have said, "The cause is sufficient." Go ahead and cry; to deny human nature would be illogical - Leonard and Spock both would've seen it as a mark of respect for their passing.

In the words of T'Pau, played with such gravitas by Celia Lovsky: "Live long and prosper, Spock."

He did.

IIRC he spent some years trying to distance himself from the role, feeling it was not serious acting, and beneath him. Is this correct? Or am I just assuming Galaxy Quest was shadowing instead of foreshadowing?

On Sunday MeTV will be airing a marathon of classic tv episodes that featured Leonard Nimoy. From the promo I saw it looks like it will include his work in Mission Impossible, The Twilight Zone, Bonanza, Sea Hunt, and others.

No, JSF you are right. It's the reason behind the book "I am Not Spock" which he penned I think in the 70s. I found a copy of it at a comic book store and bought it for a friend of mine. I hope she still has it. He wrote a second one called, "I am Spock", I think where he was accepting of the impact the character had on his life.

Sad hearing the news of his passing. But as much a part of foundation he was to current sci-fi and pop culture, I regret he didn't get to show more of himself in other roles. He struggled , it seems for a while at least, dealing with being " Spock ", and little else in the eyes of the public. Still, no one can deny the huge impact that character had on so many fans and casual observers over the decades.

We lost an icon, and much more.

Be at peace, Mr. Nimoy.

"Star Trek is great, and Leonard Nimoy's Spock was the greatest thing about it," said columnist Matthew Yglesias.

"But Spock was not only a hero. He was a particular kind of hero. Someone the wrong kind of people would call a villain. I am always struck, as a longtime Star Trek fan, by the fact that many media figures seem to think it's a dis on President Obama to compare him to Spock.

The ease with which some deride Spock makes him truly unusual for a television character. Spock is someone who some of us can eminently identify with, but also someone who others find so alien that they are compelled to castigate him. That, in turn, makes him a dozen times more relatable than a more conventional and universally admired hero."

"He was an archetype that was compelling enough to power not just five Star Trek shows, but countless characters in subsequent decades' shows: from Rupert Giles in Buffy to Benedict Cumberbatch's version of Sherlock Holmes to Temperance Brennan in Bones to House's Dr. House."

Leeloo with clothes and a cellphone? That seems like a different Fifth Element than the one I saw. I can see the suspenders, but that also seemed to apply to the girl on Lexx, and more so with the t-shirt.

Remember how Spock was the character that got Star Trek banned? Which led to it's horrible ratings and threats of it's demise before the first season was completed. But saved by the Most Powerful Woman in Hollywood. And also led to all those episodes with Spock covering his ears with various accoutrements, which I always assumed Jayne's various headgear was alluding to.

Something else that's funny:

http://wtnh.com/2015/03/04/canada-says-stop-spocking-5-bills/

Since actor Leonard Nimoy’s death on Friday, Feb. 27th, 2015, $5.00 bills in Canada have turned up “Spocked” after there was a campaign to do this was launched. According to the Toronto Sun, the Bank of Canada executives have urged Star Trek fans to stop defacing currency in tribute to Nimoy who played the Star Trek character, Spock. Canada’s seventh prime minister Sir Wilfrid Laurier is on the $5.00 bill.

Large numbers of the notes in circulation now show Laurier with Spock’s pointy ears, trademark haircut and eyebrows, a Star Trek badge and the character’s mantra “live long and prosper.”

The Sun says Bank of Canada spokeswoman, Josianne Menard, has confirmed the stunt is not illegal, but she urges Spock fans to stop. She says in a statement, “It is not illegal to write or make other markings on bank notes… However, there are important reasons why it should not be done. Writing on a bank-note may interfere with the security features and reduces its lifespan. Markings on a note may also prevent it from being accepted in a transaction. Furthermore, the Bank of Canada feels that writing and markings on bank notes are inappropriate as they are a symbol of our country and a source of national pride.”

Spocking was common for long before Nimoy's death. But it has picked up the pace a bit since his passing.

I can't recall the ditty well enough, but my face always cracks whenever I heard ads for the Spatula City store - never conjured if it existed before or only after UHF.
One of my favorite films - best film Michael Richards or Fran Drescher ever did. Stanley Spudowski just kills me. Next closest film was Freaked.

One of the things I read about Nimoy was that he felt he was "everybody's honorary grandfather," because he loved people, and I think that's especially telling of the kind of person he was. I think that deep affection for humanity has always come out, especially in his role as Spock, the observer and analyzer of humanity's adventures.

The world of science fiction fans lost one of our icons and heroes... but it feels like the world at large lost someone particularly good, kind, and loving. He will be missed.

Watched "Wrath of Khan" a few nights ago and had to turn my eyes away from the screen where Spock is talking to Kirk while dying from radiation posioning after repairing the engine. Couldn't watch the end of the film when Spock's tube is sent to the Genisis planet.

Even watching the "Undiscovered Country" was hard a few days before that.

"No power in the 'verse can stop me!"


I remember loving his voice most of all when I was younger... voices have always been a "thing" with me, which is why James Earl Jones & Patrick Stewart give me the right kind of shivers... When I was also young he narrated a series called "In Search of..." which did a different mysterious theme for every episode, eg: "In Search of UFOs" "In Search of Ghosts" - perhaps I owe some of my fascination with the paranormal to him as well?

If I could tell him how much I loved the hours I spent in his company, I would - but I do want to say, "He lived well, and prospered... and we prospered from his excellent input to many an adventure!"

I had thought it was much more recent. I must have been seeing reruns, like in the 90's or 00's. He seemed quite aged in the shows I saw. But I did enjoy them, they were before their time - or maybe he just pushed those subjects to be exposed before the mainstream decreed them ready.

Nope. "In Search Of..." ran in the 70s, so I was a child when I was seeing some of them. Not sure when it went off the air or how long its run was.
