    I'm old enough to remember Star Trek in its first run as a "b" budget sci fi entertainment show at a time when there was little to see a positive world future about.
    Spockisms made sense, were simple in wording but profound in meaning from the original pilot episode through the original Enterprise crews final voyage in Star Trek 6 where mortal enemies found common ground to make peace. Even in the remakes that ruined the original time path and meaning of the original series,Spock, because of Nimoys unwillingness to sell out, stayed true to his wise character and humble peace desiring nature. In the latter episodes of TNG he made cameo appearances in an attempt to bring peace between the federation and the romulins.
    Though Spock was just a character, his legacy changed humanity in a positive way forever. When during his troubled times as a man, he never lost site of who the world saw him as and battled valiantly to stay a truly humble human being.

    Loved that show, at least in its early years. Leonard was a quality actor.

    I have a quote on my checks. It says, "Live long and prosper," of which I have had for a very long time.

    He will be greatly missed.

    One incredible person, an amazing actor and a true gentleman. He will be surely missed by countless millions of faithful Star Trek fans and fans in general. God Bless him and his family and friends.

    In fact, space exploration owes a debt of gratitude to Leonard, William Shatner (Captain Kirk), DeForest Kelley (McCoy), George Takei (Sulu), James Doohan (Scotty), Nichelle Nichols (Uhura), Walter Koenig (Chekov) and the rest of the supporting and future staff of the subsequent shows and movies.
