Yesterday we learned of the death of  Leonard Nimoy, the actor who played the iconic character, Spock, in the equally iconic and original Star Trek.

The star who passed away, at the age of 83, played the Vulcan during the programme's heydays, in the 1960s and 70s, as well as film versions of what has become a global phenomenon.

He even returned to the franchise to play Spock Prime in the JJ Abrams directed Star Trek remake in 2009.

Even in his death, we say; “Live long and prosper.”
