Farewell, Leonard Nimoy.
One summer, I spent a multi-day car trip learning to raise my eyebrows independently of each other just so I could raise one like Spock. I geeked out when I learned Leonard Nimoy was in an episode of my absolute favorite show, Combat! My brother and I spent so many hours pretending we were Spock and Kirk that the name "Spock" conjures up my brother's face about as often as Nimoy's.
Although I fangirled over Captain Kirk as an adolescent, I now appreciate Mr. Spock's calmness and wisdom in ways I never could then. I plan to cancel my previous choice for our Friday night movie and watch a couple of my favorite Star Trek eps instead. I'm thinking "Journey to Babel" and maybe "City on the Edge of Forever." Or possibly the Combat! episode he guests in, "The Wounded Don't Cry."
