The First Vulcan

Captain's Blog Stardate 92767.81

Sometimes I find it hard to come up with ideas for this weekly blog. It's not always easy, but this is one week where I wish I had the problem of coming up with an idea. As you undoubtedly heard, Leonard Nimoy passed away on Friday at the age of 83. I feel it's only fitting to give him a proper send off.

As we all know, Spock was the first Vulcan of Star Trek. Nimoy's portrayal of that logical Vulcan on a ship full of Humans set the tone for every Vulcan character that came after him. He played the outcast during a time when Star Trek wasn't the "cool" thing to watch on TV. I could certainly understand how people would admire him and his character.

I know that I was inspired by Spock. The idea of using logic to solve problems appealed to me. That's one of the reasons that my main character in STO is a Vulcan.

Nimoy has had a long and successful career. I'm truly grateful to have lived during a time when people from around the world appreciated him. I know that a lot of people are fans of J.J. Abrams's version of Star Trek, but I am personally glad that Nimoy returned to reprise his role in those movies.

Nothing I say can do him justice. So in the comments feel free to share your thoughts on Leonard Nimoy and Spock. Maybe some of you met him at a convention so please share your stories.

While I was first a fan of Leonard Nimoy from Star Trek, I have always enjoyed seeing him in other shows like Fringe, etc.
He was a great actor, and seemed a great man. (Not sure about the singing though, but he certainly seemed to enjoy doing it. ; )

He will be missed.


PS:> While I (like many others) have issues with some parts of the new Trek, I was glad that Leonard was able to participate in it, and that the STO future story was linked into the movies through him.

When I was a little boy, I saw Leonard Nimoy first time in 1992 Star Trek VI The Undiscovered Country. Since then, I felt in crazy much on Star Trek and became Trekies. For him, I found that he is the true ideal of Vulcan in my opinion. Logical but still kept his emotional side. Human can not live on purely emotional but also can not live without emotional as well and Spock reflects that through his character.
I will miss him, always.

I sadly never met Leonrad Nimoy, but my memory of him and all the cast is watching star trek as a boy with my dad. I never met him at a conversation I wish I did, but I know 100 of people that have met him at conversation, they make replica prop from the show.
Here our there word from people that met him and some that knew him.

Take care fleet, here are a few words from the man him self.
"A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory.LLAP"
