Star Trek used to be one of my favorite shows!
I know I must have seen every single one of the shows at least two or three times over the years!
The original series has always been my favorite. I didn't care for the spin-offs too much. Of course, Spock was one of the more famous characters and was recognized by nearly everyone in the world with a television!
Sad to see some of the original cast fade away, that's for sure!
Spock attends his last 'Star Trek' convention
ROSEMONT, Ill. — Leonard Nimoy has attended his final "Star Trek" convention.
Actor Leonard Nimoy spoke for an hour about his life and career on Sunday, and thanked fans for their support over the years.
The 80-year-old actor, best-known for playing Mr. Spock in the original TV series that began in September 1966, formed four fingers into a V for Vulcan sign and intoned to fans Spock's most famous phrase: "Live long and prosper" on Sunday in Rosemont, Ill.
Nimoy said the convention in suburban Chicago celebrating the 45th anniversary of "Star Trek" would be his last.
He spoke for an hour about his life and career, and thanked fans for their support over the years. Some held signs saying: "We love you Leonard! Live long & prosper."
Creation Entertainment organizes the "Star Trek" conventions. Company CEO Adam Malin says the company has toured and collaborated with Nimoy for nearly three decades and that Nimoy "will be missed."
A sign of the times, I guess, when slowly but surely our stars of the past start to disappear! Makes us all realize that our time on this planet is limited at best!
Now, my friends, let's get some fresh coffee and sit on the patio. OK?
