We are very saddened by the passing of actor and iconic presence in TV and movie science fiction Leonard Nimoy, on February 27, 2015, at the age of 83.
Leonard Nimoy will always be associated with the role of Vulcan Science Officer Mr. Spock – not “DOCTOR Spock”, as some people incredibly continue to say to this day – on the original STAR TREK television series.
Nimoy’s performance as Mr. Spock may very well have resulted in the single most significant continuing character ever to emerge from American Science Fiction!
Leonard Nimoy and Mr. Spock boldy traveled well beyond the confines of the 1966-1969 television series, and into…
Later Television Series
And finally, franchise-rebooting contemporary feature films.
But, it is for the original STAR TREK TV series that he will always be best remembered. And, not surprisingly, he was featured in the “best-of-the-best” of those, including “AmokTime” with Arlene Martel, and “Mirror Mirror”.
Other series I enjoyed Leonard Nimoy in were…
THE OUTER LIMITS
Stepping into the shoes of the great Martin Landau, as the IMF's "Master of Disguise", Leonard Nimoy really got to stretch his acting abilities on MISSION IMPOSSIBLE.
And even THE SIMPSONS – in what is still one of my most favorite episodes, after 26 seasons and counting, 1993’s “Marge vs. the Monorail”.

Rest in Peace, Leonard Nimoy, and thank you for a lifetime of great moments and memories. ...You might even appreciate it if I don't say "Live Long and Prosper" - though I've no doubt you will... as long as imagination exists.
