In Remembrance of Leonard Nimoy – Photos, videos, memes, tweets and other tidbits of thanks.

As I’m sure you’ve probably heard by now, Leonard Nimoy has passed away. Most famously known as Mr. Spock in the Star Trek series and movies. His golden voice also graced many documentaries and stories as the narrator. Leonard, you have lived long and prospered. I know you did not like being typecast, but just know that as Spock was a character that you – and only you – brought to life.

Here are some items I gathered today on the internet. Hope you enjoy.

I am not sure who created the this first image with the main cast of Star Trek walking in the crosswalk ala Beatles style, but I did a bit of touching up to it (the second image). It now shows Spock being beamed up for the last time.

  1. And he played a character in the recent TV series, “Fringe”. It was good seeing him in action again.

    Farewell, Leonard.

    Let’s see if the new guy can fill your shoes. I bet he’s been thinking about that.

  2. I know he hated being typecast, but if he had to be, at least it was as one of the most noble, highly respected and loved fictional characters. A commenter on the NYT said Spock embodied our noblest ambitions as we began to explore space. Spock is worth remembering.

Go ahead... I can hear your thoughts. Please share with the rest!
