Leonard Nimoy was an actor, film director, poet, singer and photographer – famous for his role as Mr. Spock in the original Star Trek series and multiple sequels. We examine the cultural impact of the Spock character, what Vulcans represented, how you can “live long and prosper” and if the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.
Leonard Nimoy, William Shatner (Captain James T. Kirk), DeForest Kelley (Dr. Leonard “Bones” McCoy), George Takei (Lieutenant Hikaru Sulu) and the rest of the Starship Enterprise crew made an unforgettable impact on American culture. Rest in Peace Leonard Nimoy. Live Long and Prosper!
