Leonard Nimoy’s Death

spock_st4

It is reported today that Leonard Nimoy has died. This is a loss to the world. This is also a great loss to me. Growing up, the only thing that really meant the most to me was Star Trek. We had the VHS of the films and I must have watched them 1000 times. Star Trek was a big part of my life and Spock was definitely a favorite.

As I developed myself as a person, the pursuit of logic was very important to me. Spock in many ways became a mentor to me. Other characters from other shows did as well (feels strange to say that I got mentored by TV Character), but Spock was a major influence for me. It also helped that I had difficulty expressing myself and being understood and watching the original series, I felt a connection to Spock.

Of course, Leonard Nimoy was more than just the character Spock. He was a singer, a writer, a photographer, a director, and a family man. He is someone who was truly blessed, who was well loved, and had a great life to love. I think all of us want that, and perhaps he got lucky to get the role of Spock which led to his great life, but there is no one else who could ever fill his shoes.

I do like that Zachary Quinto was, more or less, groomed by Leonard Nimoy to take his place as the character. Zachary did a very good job considering, and he will be someone I look to as the successor of Nimoy, but he will never replace the actor for me.

Whether there is an afterlife or great beyond… a final frontier yet to be discovered…

What I say now to Leonard, I say in hopes that some part of him hears it. If nothing else, the part of me that was Spock, is the part that hears it.

Mr. Nimoy, your portrayal of Spock on Star Trek meant the world to me. In someways you were a mentor, an uncle, and an older brother. You taught me that truth and logic should always be the most paramount in any situation. As corny as it sounds, it was important for me growing up. The portrayal of a man who battled with himself on more than one occasion hit close to home for me and in some ways, what I eventually became was thanks to you. You of course are not the only source of inspiration for me, but you did have a part in it. I thank you for that, and whatever I become in the next stage in my life, I keep you close in mind and in heart for what you have given me. Farewell.

Many are showing a clip of his funeral at the end of Star Trek 2. It is a touching moment, but I rather have a moment that I best remember him, of him and his brilliance as a character and the actor being Spock. I had wanted to do Battle for Peace, one of my most favorite scenes, but I found a good scene from the movie that shows Spock being Spock.
