    I watched the premier of ST on Sept 8 1966, sitting at my Father's side; I was 11 yrs old and Spock became one of my Heroes in that moment.
    The show's moral center help shaped my thinking and broaden my views of the world and our place in it growing up.
    -- I, like all of us here, fell in love with this show, through every incarnation.

    Quote:

    “To this day, I sense Vulcan speech patterns, Vulcan social attitudes and even Vulcan patterns of logic and emotional suppression in my behavior,” Mr. Nimoy wrote years after the original series ended. But that wasn’t such a bad thing, he discovered. “Given the choice,” he wrote, “if I had to be someone else, I would be Spock.” - Leonard Nimoy

    Star Trek came on the air when I was 4 years old. My oldest brother gathered me up and said, "you want to watch this new show with me?" I was entranced from the beginning.

    There hasn't really been a time in my memory without Leonard in it, at least not much. I went to the first convention in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and got to meet and talk to him. What a gracious and delightful man and what a great laugh he had.

    It seems odd that he won't be here anymore. Of course, it happens to us all, but I'd hoped for at least another 120 years with him.

    Rest well, Mr. Nimoy. You have given such joy to so many for so long.

    Remember....like Spock's death in Wrath of Khan, he came back to us. He will come back again on movie screens and in our minds.

    "And yet it should be noted, that in the midst of our sorrow, this death takes place in the shadow of new life, the sunrise of a new world"

    New life...a new world... New life in what was a tired franchise. He acted in both of those movies giving it new life... Parallels are amazing.

    My initial reaction was captured in a vlog over here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PIU3pZ-dpII

    I had a feeling when I heard he was rushed to the hospital. I even remember thinking, "He's probably going to die," because it's never good when someone his age is rushed to the hospital.

    I had a horrible feeling of doom last night. Now I know why.

    God bless him. He brought a lot to the world and had the honor of playing one of the most iconic Scifi characters on television.

    Very sad news. We are blessed to have had him influence our lives they way he has. As Doctor McCoy said in ST II "He's really not dead... as long as we remember him." Rest in peace my friend.

    Having Leonard Nimoy alive is more pleasing than wanting. He will be missed, but I'm grateful for all of the wonderful work he has left behind and that has brought us all together.

    His legacy will live long and prosper.

    I was at lunch with friends and one got an alert on her phone. I was so sad.

    I can remember walking past the TV in my sister's house and hearing on the news that DK had died. I just sank onto the couch. Bones was my favorite, but I dearly loved Spock.

    Every interview I saw him give, every piece that I read of his only deepened my appreciation of Nimoy.

    Live Long and Prosper!

    It's hard to believe that someone could get so big in their lifetime.
