Leonard Nimoy passed away this morning. I loved Star Trek as a kid, especially Mr. Spock, and watched the reruns on Channel 13 in Los Angeles. My dad introduced me to the series and he owned a few of the wonderful Fotonovels, which were pseudo-graphic-novels featuring stills from an episode with captions and text superimposed over them. Since this was before our home had a Betamax or VHS, it was my only way of enjoying Star Trek On Demand.
I’m sad as I read all of the tributes and remembrances of Mr. Nimoy on social media, but I’m happy that he lived long and prospered: he seemed to be well-loved by all.
Rest in Peace, Mr. Nimoy.
