R.I.P. Leonard Nimoy


It is my great displeasure to be the one to announce that, sadly, Leonard Nimoy has passed away. In terms of the media, Leonard Nimoy is one of very few to have embraced all the major forms, being involved with acting, writing (both literature and for production), directing, music and art. He’s been involved with spin-off material and has managed to become one of science fictions most recognisable faces, even for people who can’t stand sci-fi.

Be it his “The Ballad Of Bilbo Baggins”, or the heroic sacrifice in Wrath of Khan, Leonard Nimoy is a man whose impact upon society, or at least, the nerd sub-culture, cannot be denied, be it from his contributions as a writer, a director, or an actor.

I for one, am greatly saddened by his shuffling off of this mortal coil – we here at TGTRS would like to offer our condolences to Leonard’s friends and family at this tough time.

He's dead, Jim

  1. A fine tribute to a great man. I never watched the original series of Star Trek so my only real exposure to Nimoy was through the Ballad of Bilbo Baggins and a few clips. Nevertheless, I’m saddened by his death
