It is with sadness that I write today. The Star Trek Family has lost its staple, Dr. Spock. Leonard Nimoy, the actor best known for his role as “Star Trek’s” emotionless, stoic, pointy-eared, half human, half alien, Dr. Spock died on Friday.
His granddaughter, Dani made the announcement adding that he was an “extraordinary man,” via Twitter.
Nimoy had revealed in 2014 that he had been diagnosed with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. His words “Live Long and Prosper” as well as his split fingered Vulcan Salute will forever live on. He was second in command to William Shatner’s Captain James T. Kirk, with his stoicism perfectly countering Kirk’s fiery personality.
Leonard Nimoy is also known as a photographer, poet, director, and singer.
