#RIPLeonardNimoy - Trekkies Mourn Death of Original Spock From Star Trek

Posted in: , , ,

#RIPNimoy is trending and it's like a big chunk of my childhood is saying goodbye. Most afternoons and weekends back in Enugu, the Anambra Broadcasting Corporation back in those days fuelled my love of everthing beyond this earth by showing re-runs of all the Star Trek movies and the series too.

Spock and his open fingered gesture was a big part of that childhood, and it's so sad that Leonard Nimoy, the original actor who portrayed the extra-terrestial so succintly has now passed on. But that is time and change, which finally gets to us all. Leonard Nimoy made the news a few days ago when he had to go in to hospital for pneumonia. He passed away today at home aged 83. May his soul rest in peace.

Tributes have been pouring out on social media from Trekkies across the world, beginning with William Shatner, the best ever Captain Kirk.
