I’m a little too young to have grown up on the original “Star Trek”, but I did get hooked on “Star Trek: The Next Generation” as a kid. And it was because of ST:TNG that I played catch-up on the original series. I must confess that I quickly grew rather fond of Spock. In fact, I can’t watch “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan” without sobbing uncontrollably at the scene pictured above.
I think a Star Trek marathon is in order.
Farewell, Mr. Nimoy, and Godspeed, Mr. Spock.
