    I’m sorry to lose him. I enjoyed him on and off camera since I was a kid.

      Now that I read that back it sounds weird. I didn’t know him off camera I just meant in his roles and in all the behind the scenes interviews and such.

        The real life person might have died, but we’ve known the person on tv and such only. I send my condolences to his family and friends, but to me, he’s never really gonna die or go away.
        My childhood hero, Mr. Spock, will forever be with us, until our final breath

    I was never a fan of Star Trek but very sad to hear the news and my condolences to his family, friends, and fans. Even though he is fondly remembered as Mr Spock, I will always remember him for providing the voice of Galvatron in Transformers the movie in the 80s!

    May Leonard Nimoy Rest in Peace. I’m doing a Star Trek marathon in his memory as corny as it sounds. He will be missed.

    Nice little tribute. I always rush to Cinemassacre whenever we get news like this, and I always find the blog posts about them really heartwarming.

    Thanks guys, and have a good weekend.

    I never would have known about it unless I clicked on the Cinemassacre email, not in to star trek an only really know him from that old simpsons episode – futurama – his documentary narrations

    It’s so sad. The last year or so, he was suffering from COPD. Apparently, he was a heavy smoker earlier in his life, and he quit 31 years ago, only to come down with the illness. I never realized that he would die quite the way he did, but to be honest, he didn’t look well at times. I’ll always be grateful to him for all the fond memories that he helped create. I wouldn’t be the person that I am today, without Star Trek, and Leonard Nimoy.

    RIP, Leonard. Live Long and Prosper.

    Don’t grieve, James. It is logical. He has been, and always shall be our friend.

    Dammit, both of you had better damn well live to be 83 at a minimum.

    All joking aside, this is a phenomenal tribute. I enjoyed watching your Star Trek Trilogy videos and look forward to your continued works.

    Fascinating but Highly Illogical

    AW! That’s sad. May he rest in peace. Nice photo guys. Pays great tribute to Spock.

    Saying Rest In Peace is highly illogical. We are wishing good will to remains of something that has no longer life in it. It is unable to respond or feel any benevolence from us, therefore making it useless. We say RIP in the false hope that the passed lifeform feels honored and respected. We need to supress the emotion and replace it with intellect. The logical thing to do is to bury the body so it can fertilize the earth and make it more fruitfull.

    • Smokingspoon

      I fail to see the logic in your reasoning. For death might simply be the ultimate form of peace one can achieve. Although they might be in wrongness, Vulcan do offer prayers to the dead sometimes.

    RIP Leonard Nimoy. Condolences to his family, friends, and fans. I had no idea anything was wrong with him. It seemed like that guy would live forever. Does anyone know if he had an appearance in the third Star Trek, or if that is even filming yet? If not, this likely means that Shatner and Nimoy won’t ever appear as Kirk and Spock together ever again. It’s really weird, too, since I just got finished marathonning every Star Trek show and movie not too long ago, except for re-watching the classic movies again. I need to get on that. I really didn’t expect to hear this news the other day. *sigh*

    I was never really into Star Trek, but I am really bothered by this. He will be missed.

    Can’t believe he’s gone. I mean he was quite old and I suspected he would die in my lifetime but it still comes as a surprise you know? There are just some people you assume can’t possibly die during your lifetime because they’re such great people.
    RIP Leonard Nimoy, RIP.

    Love that photo Boys…Great tribute.
