If you’ve never watched a single episode of #StarTrek or if you hate science-fiction, you’ve still heard of Mr. Spock. The television mythology of Star Trek has permeated our cultural identity and psyche.
Yesterday I heard the news about the passing of Leonard Nimoy, who so deftly portrayed the Enterprise’s Vulcan science officer. I am old enough to remember the original Star Trek when it was a new show. Therefore this is not a typical celebrity death for me. I could say that I’ve known and admired his work my whole life:-)

Besides bringing the character Mr. Spock to life, Leonard Nimoy was “Paris” on Mission Impossible, and hosted a show called “In Search of…” He also directed “Three Men and a Baby”, the rather controversial “The Good Mother”, and “Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home.”
He has credits on IMDB for acting, directing, and writing.
Live Long and Prosper (for eternity)!
