1 May I add that if Mr. Nimoy didn't use his abilities to turn what could have easily been a one-note automaton into someone who virtually every viewer could relate in many ways, I seriously doubt "Star Trek" would have lasted 13 episodes. There I said it. R I P and Shalom, Mr. Nimoy. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 16, 2015, 3:41 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Whoever wrote the comment about crying is right on! Nimoy and Spock were a part of the childhoods of millions of us over multiple generations. I felt like a part of me died along with Leonard but at least we have all those tv episodes and movies to watch over and over again. Thank you, Mr. Nimoy. rest in peace. -- Submitted By: (spacer) on March 8, 2015, 8:07 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

4 Spock was certainly an American cultural icon and I feel as if we have lost a Living National Treasure with the passing of Mr. Leonard Nimoy. I can't even remember the first Star Trek episode I ever saw-- he's literally been an ever-present part of my life. It's going to be hard to imagine a world without him. And any other actor that has attempted to portray Spock has paled in comparison. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on March 2, 2015, 12:19 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 He will always be remembered as Spock, though I'll always remember him as the voice of Galvatron in Transformers the Movie. Rest in peace, good sir. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on March 1, 2015, 4:27 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I love TV and movies but I don't get into celebrity worship. Robin Williams was one of my favorite actors. When I heard of his death I reacted with "that's a shame," and moved on without a second thought. Something deeply strange happened when I heard Leonard Nimoy was dead. I was working at my desk around noon on Friday and decided to check out the news. I hit the NPR stream on my phone and they were playing the Star Trek theme from the original series. I thought, cool, a Star Trek story. Instead of the usual 10 or 15 second clip, they played the whole thing and I began to get uneasy, the music went on for too long and I knew something was up. After the theme finished a very somber NPR guy said, "Leonard Nimoy died this morning at his home in California. He was 83." Here's the weird part. I cried. The news hit me right in the gut and I sobbed like a little kid. I still can't figure out why. I had never met the man and had no personal connection to him or his family. Yet there I was crying over the news of his death. I guess Nimoy and the character he was forever tied to, Spock, represented the best of human (and Vulcan) character traits. While Kirk was the frat-boy "let's break the rules and bang the babes" kind of guy, Spock was the stand-up, do what's right nerd. He was the one who took deep pride in wearing the Star Fleet uniform and was very much the conscience of the USS Enterprise. Spock has been a part of my entire life, I never knew a time without him, or Leonard Nimoy, until now. If Gene Roddenberry's vision of a better future is to last it is because of the character Spock, so brilliantly brought to life by Nimoy. I mourn the actor's passing but I know Spock will live on for many more generations. Spock and Nimoy were the best we have to offer the universe. He was the best of us, the best of our hearts, and the best of our souls and minds. LLAP old friend in your new home. -- Submitted By: () on March 1, 2015, 7:15 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
