Goodbye Mr. Spock
« on: February 27, 2015, 08:54:29 pm »
Star Trek fans the world over are today mourning the passing of our beloved Mr. Spock. Leonard Nimoy passed away today at the age of 83 from end-stage COPD.

As a huge Star Trek fan from the beginning, I always considered Spock to be the best of all the Original Cast and he was always my favorite. I once asked Myles, The Grey Stable, how much he would want for his Spock, but he wouldn't sell (changed your mind yet, Myles??? LOL).

I have just changed the name of one of our yearlings to "Dif-tor Heh Smusma", which is a Vulcan phrase from which we get the saying "Live Long & Prosper" (we already have a 4yo called "LiveLong&Prosper").

Leonard Nimoy certainly did Live Long and Prospered and definitely enriched the viewing lives of millions of Sci-Fi (and non-Sci-Fi fans) with his absolute logic and emotionless facial expressions. I will always remember the end of The Wrath of Khan when he tells Kirk "The needs of the many outweigh (Kirk finished the line: 'the needs of the few'). Or the one."

RIP Leonard Nimoy. Your memory will always Live Long in our hearts.
