Today we are saddened to learn of Leonard Nimoy’s passing. Star Trek: Generations was released in the US on November 18th, 1994. Mike and I went to see it wearing Santa hats. When Kirk died, we stood up and put our hats over our hearts. It’s a little silly to say that we had a moment of silence in a movie theater while a movie was playing, but until then, we’d been the annoying 14-year-olds gabbing over every scene, so that’s what happened. We were only partly joking in our tribute. I feel like having a whole day of silence now in memory of Leonard.
As the man himself said in his last tweet, “A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory.”
Thanks for all the perfect moments we remember, Mr. Nimoy. Godspeed.
