Star Trek

Leonard Nimoy has said the convention in suburban Chicago celebrating the 45th anniversary of “Star Trek” would be his last. We love you Leonard! Live long & prosper! I found some of the comments about this over at Yahoo News so good, I’d like to share them with you! I couldn’t have said it better!

I traveled many light years, visited uncountable planets and civilizations, and breathed the cosmos with Capt. James T. Kirk, Mr. Spock, Bones and Scotty aboard the USS Enterprise. It is with fond farewell I say back to you Leonard Nimoy, “Live long and prosper”!

Wouldn’t it be fun  to start a letter writing campaign to the Smithsonian, NASA, all the telescope research facilities across the US., (private and public) to initiate the campaign to name a newly discovered planet “Vulcan” !!!!!!  A tribute to Leonard Nimoy and Gene Rodenberry for providing all of us “trekies” with so much happy memories!

How many of us had our values shaped by a tv show. Star Trek taught us about peace and tolerence and kicking some butt when they had to and they showed us our potential. Thank you Mr. Nimoy for such a great character with so much humanity.

Ha Ha;
Mr. Nimoy. You brought Spock to life and created a character we will remember forever. My favorite Spock quote.
“The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, or one.”
Live long and prosper

The Star Trek franchise can be re-invented over and over throughout time, but it will never match the social influence and originality that the original series had. So many things from Star Trek have influenced American culture and cultures around the world. The original series brought us the first televised interracial kiss, a crew composed of different nationalities (during times of war), new ideas for technology that we now have at our iPhone fingertips (Anyone remember the picture of the Enterprise on the Apple website advertisements?), and most of all, hope for the world’s future. He isn’t just saying good bye to Star Trek conventions, he is saying good bye to a community of loyal activists. All of us share some degree of influence similar to his, although our impact on society will only follow in his footsteps as echos of his life’s work. I wish him well!

  1. This entry reminds me of something I wrote awhile back in Roland’s Ramblings. Take a look, if you wish, at:
    Spock’s Home Planet.

    I also have read the book “I AM SPOCK” authored by Leonard Nimoy. It is a great read! I still have the book.
