Death is Illogical - R.I.P. Leonard Nimoy

"Of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most... Human."

- James Tiberius Kirk

Leonard Nimoy has died after a long battle with COPD, Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. He was 83.  Nimoy was best known of being Mr. Spock in the Star Trek series (the original TV show and the movies, including the last one, Into Darkness), the most logical Vulcan in the starship Enterprise. But years during and after his time doing everything Star Trek related, he did some voice work in some movies, live action or animated, such as the Atlantian King in Atlantis: The Lost Empire and as Galvatron from Transformers: The Movie and as Sentinel Prime in Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Did I forget to mention that he voiced Spock on the animated Star Trek show, made by Filmation? Anyway, not only an actor, but also a stage performer, a musicial and a writer, who wrote two autobiographies about his life and his career.  He was a great actor and he was a great man and he will be miss.  Godspeed, Leonard. You have been, and always shall be, our friend.
