Goodbye to my favorite science officer. Leonard...
Goodbye to my favorite science officer. Leonard Nimoy, who played Spock on the original Star Trek series, died today. Nimoy invented the Vulcan salute himself. He was inspired by the Jewish Priestly Blessing he had seen at an Orthodox synagogue.
Spock's Advice To A Teenage Girl Will Make You Cry
This saying does not occur in the series, it actually derives from the 1987 song 'Star Trekkin' ' sung by The Firm. The nearest equivalent found in the series is "(There is) no life as we know it (here)" said by Mr. Spock in 'The Devil in the Dark'.
