It appears those of you who have posted, don't know the real Leonard Nimoy. I saw him on a roast of William Shatner years ago, and Nimoy was coming out as a freaking queer and had his male lover with him and they were disgusting fawning all over each other through the whole thing. Nimoy made a statement to the group about how wonderful it was he could now tell everyone about his love for this other man. I was shocked and disgusted at his behavior.

From that moment on until now, I cringe when I hear his name.

That must be news to his current wife, you sure you’re not thinking of George Takei (Sulu)?

The ‘new’ Spock is gay. Nimoy, to my understanding, is not. Married, children, etc. If he ‘came out’ during a roast, it may have been a gag. George Takei came out as gay, so maybe they thought it would be funny if Nimoy did as well.

To really savor a bad vocal performance try and find the Carl Sandberg Sings LP records. They are in a league of their own.

He was a really good actor. Consider that in real life he is an illogical, emotional, libtard idiot but he portrayed a calm, logical, rational scientist type. Too bad some of the Spock character didn’t wear off on him.

But that is the way liberals think of themselves. They actually believe their authoritarian views Are the Vulcan logic. They live in a Star Trek universe.

One World Govt. No private money or weapons, etc.

Gene Roddenberry’s SFB Utopia was a totalitarian nightmare dressed up in Ringling Bros clown paint.

"Penny" is always confused by Star Trek & Star Wars!

I don't think she was talking about the new Spock, Zachary Quinto, who is openly gay.

And I remember him as the guilty guy on an episode of Perry Mason.

GLAD to see Nimoy in the latest Trek, even on oxygen he was better than Quinto!
