The loss of Leonard Nimoy was one of those deaths that, despite not knowing the person, hits us where we live because he was a part of our lives for as long as we could remember.

The cast and crew of the upcoming Star Trek Beyond have remembered Leonard Nimoy in a touching tribute to the actor and a charity that he supported.

Spock in the new Trek movies, Zachary Quinto, said: “Through his legendary portrayal of Spock, he influenced countless scientists and artists — myself and the rest of the cast included.” 

The video is part of the Omaze campaign, highlighting nine different charities chosen by the actors.

It’s a touching tribute, indeed…

Live long and prosper.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
