Words cannot express the sense of loss that many StarTrek fans have been feeling the last week or so since we learned that our sci-fi guru of sorts, Leonard Nimoy, had boldly gone where we will all go in the end.
Nimoy was Spock. I know he was playing a character, but it was more than that, and he knew it. He affected the culture of the world in such a profound way, that so many scientists, astronauts, teachers and more, would be so moved and inspired by him, and Star Trek in general, that they wanted to emulate Spock in whatever way they could in our day and age.
He was a kind man, an intellegent sage who had to grow into his ears and embrace what impact Spock would have on his life. I saw him in person once at a convention in SF when I was in my teens. He talked about his other endevors, directing, and photography, more than Spock, and I was surprised to see how much the audience knew about all these aspects of him. He also plugged his son's upcoming directorial debut.
While we are all saddened by his passing, let us also celebrate his rich life. This episode has gone through a few transformations along the way to evolve into this finished product. I hope I have done justice to his memory.
RIP Leonard. Thank you for your work. You will most certainly be missed, Spock lives forever because of you.
