This is one time when I suspect that not too many people are going to be asking "who"?

I have to confess Wrath of Khan is one of my secret vices. I can watch it again and again and know it off almost by heart. The bit when Spock sacrifices himself to save the Enterprise still makes me gulp back a tear.

Watch Star Trek - Into Darkness. New cast, same characters, but a different twist on this specific event.

Wonder if his dying words were "beam me up Scotty" :O

His voice, his face, his gravitas were things that made him somewhat unique within the acting community. There weren't many like him. RIP

He can't be dead. He's a Vulcan. They live for ever.

A marvellous, unforgettable actor.
Loved his reading of Desiderata.

He will be missed. Even his voice in Civilization 4 made advancing to new technologies even better.
Guess there will be no more old Spock in any upcoming Star Trek franchise :(

I remember Mr Nimoy in the smash hit series called "In Search of...". Don't know if it preceded the Trek shows, never really was a fan of those, I mean, who could take grown men wearing latex on their heads seriously.

FWIW of those Trek shows it seems the formula was a horny Captain Kirk always getting the girl, but there was one episode I remember where Mr Spock scored himself and what an absolute beauty she was......the only logical explanation of course - Huba huba huba.

RIP Leonard, hope your new journey is yet another adventure.

I'm not sure if it's just me, but I have some difficulty with the Vulcan hand-sign. It "\ \\ //" doesn't come naturally:

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/5/52/Hand_parts_-_en.svg/320px-Hand_parts_-_en.svg.png

When I try it quickly, I just get "\ \\ ! /"
And if I try to move my little "pinky" finger towards my ring finger, I get "\ !!!!"

It's only when I do it in 3 stages, beginning with "\ \ ! / /"
followed by moving my ring finger towards the pinky "\ \ ! //"
do I finally achieve the desired "\ \\ //"

Presumably, in a real-life situation, this would have taken so long that the alien life-forms that I'd intended to communicate my most friendly intentions to, would have already vaporised me.

Anyway...

A thespian who was, I dare say, adequately recompensed for his efforts has become terminally time-expired and grown men on here mourn for him?

No, We mourn for ourselves. :(

Lets face it our news channels are just part of showbiz now so naturally they go over the top a bit on the death of one of their own.

Heh, far as ah know ol Spocky never got any voice over work for the current global warming spruikers. Wonder why... perhaps the climate hysterics dont want yer to know about the global cooling panick they were pushing back in the 70's..:hmm:

(donning Spockys voice) THE COMING ICE AGE scientists believe after 30 years of global cooling that a new ice age is imminent...

You have to hand it to a program from the sixties, flip top mobile phones and hardware stuck in the ears like a modern day taxi driver, who thought of all that then!!

Dont forget, they even had 60's versions of Ipads; especially on Star Trek TNG.

Um... lifting...

He was also a pretty decent photographer. Some, perhaps, NSFW if you're employed by puritans, but all beautifully captured.
