Live Long and Prosper

Spock

As a fan of science fiction, I’m glad that Leonard Nimoy, otherwise known as Spock, graced us with his presence on TV and in film. He died today at the age of 83.

Spock is, of course, a character from Star Trek, and is, in my opinion, the most developed and memorable character in the sci-fi canon. I’ve often wondered to what extent Nimoy was acting when he played Spock. He always seemed to disappear into the character, like another one of my favorite actors, Clint Eastwood. It makes me think that Nimoy was just playing himself.

Nimoy is gone. Rest in peace. Spock lives on. I wait for the next Star Trek release.

The actor Zachary Quinto has proven an adequate replacement, but will never be Nimoy’s equal. Still, I should take this opportunity to say to Mr. Quinto, live long and prosper.
