To Slowly Go Where No Man Has Gone Before: In Defense of ‘Star Trek: The Motion Picture’
The poster for Star Trek: The Motion Picture is so dramatic. The faces of William Shatner’s Captain Kirk, Leonard Nimoy’s Mr. Spock, and Persis Khambatta’s Lieutenant Ilia refracted through a rainbow spectrum of light. That image promises excitement beyond imagination. Adventure! Passion! Every color under the rainbow!

The late, great Leonard Nimoy, who died earlier today at the age of 83, will always be Mr. Spock, second-in-command of the USS Enterprise under Captain James T. Kirk. For a long time, Nimoy was not okay with this. And then, over the years, he embraced the character that defined his career and inspired an entire generation of fans (many of whom became scientists, engineers, and astronauts). But Nimoy didn't just sit back and rest on his Vulcan laurels. When he wasn't wearing those pointy ears, Nimoy was acting, directing, writing, singing, and lending his likeness and distinctive voice to commercials and TV specials. He was a real Hollywood renaissance man, dabbling in high art, low art, and everything in-between.

The Vulcan salutation, "Live long and prosper" held true for MR. Spock. Leonard Nimoy, however didn't live forever. In the 2009 movie Star Trek, Spock was portrayed by both Nimoy, and Zachary Quinto. The elder Spock was more than 100 years old. Leonard Nimoy has passed away at age 83.
