    And the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few -- or the one.

    Live long and prosper for eternity, Mr. Spock.

    Perhaps Orson Welles' ghost can give him a new body to wreak havoc on another generation of geekdom.
    RIP to, if not the patron saint of nerds, then at least someone who was in the pantheon.

    He did live long and prosper.

    Farewell and climb the mountain.

    Wasn't he also the narrator for stuff like "In Search Of..." and some of those aliens-landed-on-earth-centuries-ago shows?
  6. Hell yes he was!
    That's what I think of first instead of Star Trek. LOVED that show as a kid!

    When someone who is such a huge part of the pantheon of a culture, it's tempting to think he or she will somehow evade the ravages of old age or the grim arrival of the Reaper.

    Sadly, Nimoy's late in life frailties served as a reminder that our heroes will eventually leave us. They don't make his final departure any easier to deal with.

    As someone who cried legit tears when his character Captain Spock died in The Wrath of Khan, I feel the grief of losing him to the Reaper once and for all.

    RIP, Mr. Nimoy.

    Read his book I Am Spock just a month ago. That was a second autobiography he wrote after penning one in the mid-1970s (IIRC) entitled I Am Not Spock in which he tried to distance himself from the Star Trek character. Haven't read the first one but I Am Spock is really good. Neat stories such as working with Ingrid Bergman on a film about Golda Meir, then jetting to Beijing to do a project in which he was the only American involved. Recently saw him in the remake of Invasion of the Body Snatchers and it reminded me of a story in the book in which he described being stalked and the woman having stolen personal items from his hotel room.

    As an actor, he had tremendous range and seemed like a very intelligent man.

    LLAP, Mr. Nimoy.
