Almost a year ago to the day, Leonard Nimoy succumbed rather unexpectedly to the COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) condition that had plagued him for years. He joins DeForest (Dr. McCoy) Kelley and James (Scotty) Doohan as members of the original cast who have died.

I didn’t know Mr. Nimoy, of course, but his passing certainly gave me pause. His creation of one of the most memorable characters in the history of filmed fiction lives on after him, to be sure, and has affected a great many people.

Including me. Rest in peace, Mr. Spock.
