(Serious nerd alert.)
The nerd in me has been crying for the past two hours. I have loved this man since I was a child.
Spock is my favorite character and I have always preferred the original Star Trek series, though I enjoy all of them. I used to participate in an online role play simulation in a large Star Trek community, my character was a female Vulcan, based heavily on Spock. I began as an Ensign and was promoted to Lt Commander through the years. I loved it, I miss it, and today my world is not right, my heart is broken. I became real time friends with my "Captain" and we remain great friends to this day. He is as heartbroken as I am.
I am fully aware there are "more important" things going on in the world right now, but today, my world is darkened and I humbly pay my deepest respects to this wonderful human who brought so much to us. Mr. Nimoy was a tremendous man, indeed a legend.
Warp speed to your final Home, dear Spock.Edited:
