So sad right now... Leonard Nimoy died overnight of a pulmonary complication. He was 83. BBC story here.

I watched so many Star Trek episodes on TV when a small kid, fascinated with those journeys. So many of the things that we have today and were predicted by the screenwriters and played by those humans and aliens going where no man has gone before.

Live long and prosper.

Below a photo from NASA of the USS Enterprise crew in front of the space shuttle. Many of the NASA engineers and scientists were inspired by their stories.

Could you imagine Star Trek without him? Loss of a legend. RIP.

Leonard and the Big Bang Gang (Wow that sounds pretty bad) will be gutted, shame given Howard has already been through so much recently.

A sad loss to the entertainment industry and us "Trekkies" In the words of Bones "He's dead Jim but not as we know it"

A very talented man , will be missed by millions.

Not only did I spend countless hours as a kid marveling at the original Star Trek but still watch them now when they are run.

A very sad day for all syfy around the worlds.

My heart goes out to his faimily in this sad time.

RIP and live long and prosper.

One of my favourite actors and without a doubt my favourite 'Trek character. On top of being a brilliant actor, he was a really top gent. A sad day indeed but he lived long, and prospered. RIP Leonard Nimoy.

In a weird coincidence, last Saturday my neighbour picked up a new puppy. A border collie. He named the puppy Spock.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

He did indeed live long and prosper.

They should shoot his ashes into space, the Final Frontier so that he can indeed go where no man has gone before.
