    sad day for sure...He lived a good, long life.

    I wonder what his burial plans are...they should launch his coffin into space.

    George Takei was FBing a few days ago that he wasn't well but someone had replied that he'd picked up on an old story. Looks like George was right.

    He fought hard against his Star trek character image but never really shook it off and seemed to accept it eventually.

    I prefer to think of it as a sequel.

    groan...
    I have a feeling this line will be repeated to death on all the "entertainment tonight" type shows...

    His best line and his (movie) dying words...

    The needs of the many, outweigh the needs of the few, or the one.

    sad, man seeing the original series and the actors so young...was a long time ago.
    i was rewatching parts of ST II a few weeks ago, and man, it is a good movie. the discussions of revenge and sacrifice are certainly beyond your standard sci fi movies....it was a good movie.

    This, and so much this.

    Much of our current technology was directly influence or created because of Star Trek. Cell phones, Ipads, medical equipment... long list of stuff.

    It was heartening to see him get some play BBT. They sure kept his legacy alive.

    As a kid in the '70's, his narration on the show "In Search Of" was riveting. Loch Ness, Bigfoot, Easter Island, and Emelia Earhart were some of the episodes I can still remember seeing.

    Spock always had the answer. RIP Leonard Nimoy.
