First and foremost, all of my love and best wishes to the family and friends of Leonard Nimoy. I can’t imagine how difficult it must be for those who actually knew and loved the man.
I only had one opportunity to meet the man at a Star Trek convention in Kansas City and on that amazing weekend, a very dear friend of mine and myself got to hear Mr. Nimoy perform live as Spock in a live performance of Spock Vs. Q with John DeLancie. I remember feeling chills run down my spine as Leonard spoke his lines as Spock…with just the smallest amount of suspension of disbelief, I could believe that I was actually in the same room as the First Officer of the Enterprise! For many reasons, that was one of the most magical weekends of my life.
Last Friday when Mr. Nimoy passed, I think a lot of us felt like a member of our very own family has passed. However, one thing Mr. Nimoy was known for was his sense of humor, and I believe that he would want us all be to sharing happy memories and having a laugh in honor of his legacy.
Moving on, welcome back to Issue #28 of That Time On Star Trek by Brent Kincade! Riffing on the voyages of the U.S.S. Enterprise, our mission is to lovingly poke fun at the odd and strange moments found among the stardust scattered along the final frontier.
This week we voyage back to one of the films directed by Leonard Nimoy, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986) where we find that during an iconic scene (who doesn’t occasionally pick up their computer mouse and say, “Hello Computer”?) perhaps Scotty wasn’t as confused as we thought…
