Who is Your Favorite Star Trek Character and Why is it Spock?
The great Leonard Nimoy has left us for the Genesis Planet. In our sadness, let's look back not just at Star Trek (as the question suggests), but at everything he gave us, from Spock to Body Snatchers to Three Men and a Baby to Standby: Lights, Camera, Action, the Nickelodeon show on which I grew up watching him as a kid. He gave so much to the world and lived such a full life that it's hardly tragic to think he died at the old age of 83, and yet he's one of those people that any time is too soon to say goodbye.
Why is Spock the best character in all of Star Trek -- and arguably one of the best characters in all of modern pop culture? What are your favorite Nimoy performances? How are you saying goodbye? Let's see each other through this.
