      Very sad news. The man was a living legend. He made Star Trek what it was.

          When I heard he went to the hospital a couple days ago, I had a feeling it might be his time.

          Take a look at that Star Trek II pic and tell me that you thought that Spock and Sulu would be the most relevant and well-rounded media savvy peeps (that made it to 2015). Not including Kirk - because that dude never went away and has always been with us - but Spock and Sulu participated and excelled in so many many other mediums.

            Rest in peace, Leonard Nimoy.
            I remember his role as Dr. Barry Mayfield in Columbo, since I don't really have connection for his work in Star Trek series.

              One of the most iconic actors of this or any other generation. Along with Gene Roddenberry, I think he's one of the few that you could say was Star Trek. May his legend live long an prosper.

                Sad day it was. A True Icon in Entertainment and a voice for equalities in other fields. I urge anyone if not familiar, check out his photography which was very topical and thought engaging! On another note I heard the great people who attended the Long Beach Comic Con had a moment of unified silence with the Vulcan salute.
