Remembering Leonard Nimoy 1931 - 2015

Actor Leonard Nimoy, who died Friday at age 83, will always be remembered as Spock in the original Star Trek series (1966-69), Star Trek: The Animated Series (1973-74), and in eight feature films, including Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979), Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982), Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (1984), Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986), Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (1989), Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991), Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness (2013). He received three Primetime Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his role as Spock.

Other television credits include two seasons of CBS's Mission: Impossible (1969-71), In Search of... (as the host of the 1977-82 syndicated series), A Woman Called Golda (a 1982 TV movie for which he received a Primetime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or a Special), Ancient Mysteries (as the host of the 1994-98 A&E series), and a recurring role as Dr. William Bell on the Fox series, Fringe (2009-2012). He also appeared in the 1978 film, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, and directed six feature films, including Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, Three Men and a Baby (1987), The Good Mother (1988), Funny About Love (1990) and Holy Matrimony (1994).

In addition to composing several volumes of poetry, Nimoy recorded five albums of music, including Leonard Nimoy Presents Mr. Spock's Music From Outer Space (1967), Two Sides of Leonard Nimoy (1968), The Way I Feel (1968), The Touch of Leonard Nimoy (1969) and The New World of Leonard Nimoy (1970).

I'm not much of a Trekkie although I enjoyed the show and some of the movies, particularly The Voyage Home, but he did many other things and always seemed an engaging man. I remember that TV movie Baffled, it was quite a lot of fun. Hadn't realized it was supposed to be a pilot. I also remember him for his time on Mission Impossible.
