I’m at a bit of a loss here.  When I heard Leonard Nimoy was hospitalized earlier this week, I knew deep down it would not end well.

I grew up watching Star Trek, even before I discovered Doctor Who.  I grew up watching Spock, and I learned a lot of things from him.  The most important one to my young mind was his line from the episode “Operation: Annihilate!” – “Pain is a thing of the mind.  The mind can be controlled.”

But he was so much more than Spock.  And he was fascinating to watch in any role.

A legend is gone.  Tonight, my family and I will be sitting down to watch Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan in his honor.  It’s the perfect night for that.
