Live long and prosper...Mr Spock

Post by Eclectic » Mar 01, 2015 1:16 pm

I mourn the passage of Leonard Simon Nimoy. His character "Mr. Spock" was one of the most influential fictional characters of my life (other than James Bond - you know the real James Bond; "Sean Connery" not those other goofy ones but this new guy "Daniel Craig" is really good too).

When I first saw his character I was only 13 y/o, I was completely "fascinated" by the idea of making decisions based on pure logic and no emotion. I still to this day strive of that.

From his skeptical lifted eyebrow to his fascination with emotional beings and his struggle to find a place in worlds where he never quite fit. He created one of the most iconic characters in all of modern entertainment. A character that has been an inspiration to generations of geeks, nerds, scientists, astronauts and entrepreneurs.

With a lump in my throat and a tear in my eye (I can't give up emotions entirely), I raise my hand in the (Jewish inspired) salute that you created. While your physical body may have passed, the character you created will always "Live long and prosper, Mr. Spock" :cry:
So you've sweat and toiled and tinkered
You know her every bolt and wire
But when it's just you and her and the wind and the silence
It feels like you are flying and you are being pushed along by the hand of the creator

Transportation…not just recreation

It's sad news indeed. His character may be immortalised, but only because of him. He will be missed.

RIP Spock.

The world is a bit sadder now.

Here's a look at the other side of Spock.

Buy the ticket, take the ride.
