    Terrible news today. 'Star Trek' star, Leonard Nimoy dies at the age of 83. Many know and will remember Nimoy as 'Spock'. The super intelligent human-alien, first officer of the Starship Enterprise. He passed away early Friday morning in Los Angeles. The cause per his wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, was end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Nimoy had said last year he was diagnosed the disease due to his years of smoking. Which he had given up the habit decades before.

    He will be missed by many.

    Some of my favorite 'Spock' qoutes:

    "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, or the one."

    "It is curious how often you humans manage to obtain that which you do not want."

    "Once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth."

    "I have never understood the female capacity to avoid a direct answer to any question."

    "Insufficient facts always invite danger."

    "Computers make excellent and efficient servants, but I have no wish to serve under them."

    "Without followers, Evil cannot spread"

    And obviously, "Live long, and prosper" though, that one may invite a little extra sting right now, but it is still good.

    He will be missed.

    Yeah. Love long and prosper is one of my favorites as well. Didn't feel right including in this situation though.

    I have always been a much bigger Star Wars fan than Star Trek. But I bet this must be detrimental to the diehard Trekkers. Funny how a fictional character can have so much of an impact on you when the person portraying them passes.
