Now it’s Leonard Nimoy’s turn. “Spock” is 81 today.
Spock was a major influence on my teenage years. The rational, intelligent outsider, whose presence was always required to save the day, helped me get through times when I thought I might not. His quest for knowledge, his acceptance of what was, his ability to suppress emotions so they would not overwhelm, served as a role model for me. Perhaps not the best role model for a real human being, but one that helped me immensely.
And a couple of episodes where he got his shirt off didn’t hurt, either! (Shatner’s constant “shirt on-shirt off” didn’t have the same effect, for some reason)
Happy Birthday, Mr. Nimoy.
Live long, and prosper.
