Re: sad
@StaceyE,

I was talking to my wife about how a person embraced his life based on a character he had portraid only a number of times. I think that we were lucky we got to see him on film in his iconic role in the latest versions of star trek, along some execellent voice over work he was also well known for.

Will truly be missed

@ David

What a great story. Mr. Nimoy really did seem like he was a genuinely kind hearted person. Even as a vulcan, it shined through. ;)

I think his legacy will certainly live on for generations. I imagine fifty years from now people will still be watching old episodes of Star Trek.

I agree, Star Trek is timeless entertainment. I am a mother of 6 (oldest 28, youngest 9) and all of our kids love Star Trek. Mr. Nimoy was someone that has "always been there" and it is very sad to hear of his passing.

Charlie,

Not just extended but very much made Science Cool for Kids in ways one can't even imagine anyone doing/trying today.

Can you Believe it that this Legendary Figure who inspired so many kids to take up Science/Astronomy is no more today?

Is that to do with the Very real Dumbing down of our Society as we see it currently?

Taimoor,

That's the sheer Magic of the Series!

To The Future and Beyond!

The Basic reason why the Series was so loved was because it answered a Basic Human Need -To Quench our Thirst of Curiousity.

Its a never ending desire for sure.

David,

Could'nt agree more!

Nimoy/Spock was very much Star Trek ;nothing more Nothing Less.

It also helped that he was an immensely down to earth(mind the Pun) person as against Mr Shatner's More Aloof nature.
