    Just have her watch some Star Trek TOS (TV and/or movie) DVDs - I think she'll understand.

    You wanna know the most amazing, and perhaps blasphemous things? I never watched TOS myself. It was something that I always intended to but, just never did. What I knew him from was more so the movies and his appearances on various shows as a cameo. With his passing though, I think I might go back and watch them. I saw that recently they did some serious updating to the old show (technologically speaking).

    Nathan Fillion had a very similar tweet to that:

    It'll likely be "Live long and prosper" but yeah, "Fascinating" probably is more how Nimoy, and Spock, viewed life.

    First off, I apologize if this has been posted someone. I looked around but didn't find a thread, so I thought I should put this up. Kind of surprised actually it hadn't been put up as yet. Nimoy is probably the first actor, or famous person really, that has passed away that I really cared anything about. That's not the say that just as big or bigger icons haven't passed away in my lifetime, just none that I took an interest in. Thought I'd share his last tweet he sent out just a few days ago:



    At this moment, #RIPLeonardNimoy is the #2 Trending Topic worldwide, so I guess I'm not the only one that's sad that he's gone.
    Greetings, Hamster Buddha.

    "Live long and prosper." The series would not have been the same without Spock. Captain Kirk - aka William Shatner - was in Cleveland this past weekend for a Wizard World Comic Con benefit, and he drew a huge crowd that waited in long lines and paid to have a photo taken with him, but I believe Spock would have beaten his attendance record. Even though the original series aired in the late sixties, even teenagers today know who Spock is, but I wonder how many could tell you who was POTUS in those years!

    R.I.P. Leonard Nimoy, and condolences to his family and friends. He is a legend.
