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 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:
