Death Of A Legend.

The battle between Star Wars and Star Trek has been silenced for one day in honor of Leonard Nimoy. In many Trekkie’s Minds he was THE ONLY Spock. TMZ reports that he died in his home Friday morning after a battle with COPD. He checked into UCLA Medical Center last week for chest pain and was released.

TMZ reports that he played Spock in every episode of the original series when it debuted in 1966. He continued his role as Spock through 2013. Spock wasn’t his only claim to fame. He was also an author and singer! Can you imagine the deadpan Spock singing?! DAMMIT JIM, I’M A SINGER NOT A DOCTOR! LOL! Sorry– Had to throw in some humor.

He last tweeted, “”A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP” The full article from TMZ can be read here:

And so with that, we roll him out to the great expanse of the universe. Live Long And Prosper, Mr. Spock. You will be loved and adored by fans for generations to come, good sir. I must admit here that I was a Star Wars fan myself and never really got into the Star Trek movement, however I know plenty of adoring fans who are deeply saddened by this loss. And I will be the second to admit, Sci-Fi lost an absolute LEGEND this morning! Leonard Nimoy was 83. May his legend live long and prosper and never fade from the earth.
