Leonard Nimoy, “Star Trek’s” Spock, Passes at 83

The television series “Star Trek,” which originally aired from 1966-1969 has become a staple for fans of science fiction and is considered an iconic series amongst the entertainment industry. That being said, the passing of Leonard Nimoy, the actor who brought Spock to life, has inspired and influenced so many writers and science fiction stories over the years.

Nimoy died on Friday after battling chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; even though he hasn’t smoked for almost thirty years. The actor’s son reported his father’s death and that he died in Los Angeles.

Nimoy’s career was always constant and even though he is most known for his role as the essentially emotionless Vulcan, he was an acclaimed author, and played roles on other popular projects such as “Mission Impossible” and “A Streetcar Named Desire.”

Nimoy will always be remembered for his role as Spock over anything else and the late actor stated that people, “recognize in themselves this wish that they could be logical and avoid the pain of anger and confrontation. How many times have we come away from an argument wishing we had said and done something different?”

Nimoy at one moment regretted playing Spock, but eventually he realized what it really brought and at one time he stated, “Of course the role changed my career or rather, gave me one. It made me wealthy by most standards and opened up vast opportunities. It also affected me personally, socially, psychologically, and emotionally. What started out as a welcome job to a hungry actor has become a constant and ongoing influence in my thinking and lifestyle.”

“Live Long and Prosper.”
