Goodbye Leonard Nimoy

leonard-nimoy2

1931 – 2015

Today Leonard Nimoy died. He was hospitalized a few days ago and when no news came I was afraid I was just waiting to hear he had died. I’m just a fan, an honorary grandchild I hope. If I had to point to a #1 fandom it would be Star Trek, and the character Spock shaped a great deal of the way I think and the things I believe.

So if you want to know more about me and Star Trek you can read some of my previous blog posts. Or you can click on the link to see the rest of this post, a group of pictures of my Star Trek memorabilia and some Nimoy related entries from twitter.

To Nimoy, I think Nathan Fillion put it best, “I have been, and always shall be, your fan.”
