It is with deep sadness that I woke up earlier today to find out that Leonard Nimoy (aka Mr. Spock) has died. I was (and still am) a huge Star Trek fan, and enjoyed watching Nimoy portray the famous Vulcan on the Star Trek TV series and films. He’s also appeared on many other TV series, including Mission: Impossible, Columbo, The Simpsons, Futurama, Fringe, and The Big Bang Theory, as well as the theater. He’s also been a film director (besides directing 1984’s Star Trek III: The Search For Spock and 1986’s Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, he made 1987’s Three Men and a Baby, although his directing career faltered after that). He has also been a successful photographer and writer of two autobiographies, I Am Not Spock (in 1975) and I Am Spock (1995). He also wrote poetry and shared some on Twitter, including his actual final tweet: “A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP.” His final big screen appearance was, appropriately enough, a cameo as Spock in 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness. Nimoy lived a long life and indeed prospered, and has entered the final frontier. Farewell, Spock.
