A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP

I liked his character in the early 'Treks'.. However, with the best will in the world, he was hardly a great actor.....

Farewell Mr. Spock!

He was, and will remain, a sci fi hero. His one regret in life, and it turn him into an alcoholic, was playing Spock there was so much more to the man. RIP Leonard, boldly go where you've never gone before.

"We are assembled here today to pay final respects to our honored dead. And yet it should be noted that in the midst of our sorrow, this death takes place in the shadow of new life, the sunrise of a new world; a world that our beloved comrade gave his life to protect and nourish. He did not feel this sacrifice a vain or empty one, and we will not debate his profound wisdom at these proceedings. Of my friend, I can only say this: of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most... human."

Capt. Kirk in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

Huge Star Trek fan and sorry to see one of the great characters from that series go. Spock's character evolved and grew throughout the original TV series, the subsequent films and spin off series. He was even in the new reboot films set in a parallel universe. It took a great actor to grow and evolve with the character he played. RIP Leonard.

Live Long and Prosper!

I didn't know Leonard Nimoy was an alcoholic. If that,s the case, at 83, he didn't have a bad run. Wonder if he ever tried Newcastle Brown, aka "Journey into Space". Sorry to hear he's gone.

After ruining a generation with his fruit loop ideas on child rearing, Dr Spock, allegedly announced that he was wrong!

Mr Spock was a Vulcan, but you can learn Klingon if you want. They'll need interpreters when they get here.

Also sadly I know you are not quite right as there were various 'ships' used in different classes so there was also 1701 (B) 1701 (C) and 1701 (D). After that I'll just beam up(Thumb)

Good point MontyBlue :) There was (Thumb)

At the end of Star Trek the movie IV (The Voyage Home) Kirk was demoted from Admiral to captain and his new starship was the NCC 1701 A

USS Enterprise NCC-1701 as 'starred' in the original television series had no suffix and is therefore really the only one that matters!

I know it's warp-speed away from Spock, but...

In the mid 1970s I was Food and Beverage Director of a large convention hotel adjacent to Los Angeles International Airport. The annual Star Treck convention convened. I, being a "treckie," had a great time watching re-runs, attending panel discussions etc.. Ninety per cent of the attendees were either dressed in their interpretation of "intelligent life from a galaxy near them," or they were dressed "hippy style" and having heaps of fun.

I had written three screen plays and sold options on two. A couple of screen writer friends were attending and introduced me to Gene Roddenberry, writer and producer of the Star Treck original series. We all ended up in the bar, and the talk was about movie writing, and I was eating it up with a spoon. G.R. sent me a hand written note.

Rodney,

Don't worry about enriching the nations literature...take the advance and run.

(Signed) Gene Roddenberry.

A couple of years later the Star Treck convention returned to L.A., but this time held at a rival hotel. I talked my wife into attending, being no "treckie" she reluctantly agreed. Out came my tie-dyed shirt and raggedy jeans, again I talked her into "getting with-it," and the pair of us walked into the hotel's ballroom like we had fell off a star ship....Except everybody this year was dressed in normal garb. To say my former wife was pished would be putting it mildly, and no that was not the cause of the divorce but probably a contributing factor.

Rest well Mr. Spock, you gave me much pleasure.

Cheers, Rodney (and still a treckie.)
