Original Post

I just had to post something when I read that he had passed away.  I so enjoyed Star Trek and still watch the re-runs sometimes, and "Dr. Spock" was my favorite character.  

 

It was only after I got older that I realized how ahead of its time Star Trek was and just which episodes were actually metaphors for the social issues of the time (and still today), like race, class, greed, the intellectual evolution of man, not to mention how Science imitated the Art of "Star Trek" in discoveries and technological invention and advancement.

 

Star Trek did humanity a service by just being on the air, and I think that the character, "Dr. Spock" did influence many people to develop a concept of thinking "logically" about life and perceptions.

It's sad when the people we grew up with pass away never to be replaced.  It just means the elders are passing shifting the baton to the babies of today.  Humanity replenishing itself, possibly not for the better, but time waits for no one. It's an awakening that eventually, everyone's time is done. The reality is, that we all just become memories; good or bad.

Koenig: Leonard Nimoy Fought To Get Nichelle Nichols Pay Equity For ‘Star Trek’ + Nimoy Confirms

The fact that Nimoy fought for Nichelle Nichols back in the 1960s shows a bit of bravery. Back then women’s pay equity wasn’t the same kind of  hot topic it is today. On top of that, while he was a lead, Nimoy was still just an actor in the show and didn’t have the kind of pull he would eventually have when he went on to produce and direct for the Star Trek movies in the 80s & 90s. All in all, Walter’s story just proves what we all knew, Leonard Nimoy is a mensch.

Interesting how we don't learn things about someone until they are dead.

 

We live in a sea of unimportant information that the media people decide that we much know.  LOL
