    Star Trek star Leonard Nimoy has passed away, The New York Times has reported.

    Nimoy, who played Mr. Spock on the original Star Trek series, was hospitalized last week following complaints of severe chest pains. Nimoy revealed last year that he had been diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. According to the Times, Nimoy's wife Susan Nimoy confirmed the death while confirming COPD as the official cause of his death.


    We have lost another of the Greats... a man who not only played an iconic role in a fabulous series, but a man who was also deeply moved by the thoughts of what his appearances taught others. He was always conscious about, and attempted to, show a light to the world to help make it a better place.

    Rest In Peace, Mr. Nemoy... you will be missed.

    Don't cry for me in sadness, don't weep for me in sorrow,

    For I will live on beside you, as sure as comes tomorrow.

    My body has gone but my spirit lives on, as does my love for you,

    Just as in life, I'll watch over you, I always will be true.

    My blood lives on in my children, how I've watched them grow with pride,

    I'll live on within them, always by their side.

    I know my jokes weren't always funny and jobs weren't always done,

    Just try and remember the good times, the days when we had fun.

    Reach out if you need me, for I always will be near,

    Just talk to me, as if I am there, I promise I will hear.

    For I'll live on, within your mind, we'll never be apart,

    As long as you keep, my memory, deep within your heart.

    Star Trek’s Leonard Nimoy Leaves a Lasting Legacy:

    Leonard Nimoy played a half-alien-half-human character — Spock — who seemingly was going to live forever. He survived having his brain removed, being bitten by a deadly alien creature and other harrowing experiences. Later, he actually did give his life to save his crew but was resurrected. And he was transported through time in the Star Trek universe to appear across hundreds of years. But the very human Nimoy died earlier today at age 83, leaving a legacy of not just an enduring science fiction character, but the generations of scientists and explorers he inspired.

    Nimoy had been hospitalized earlier in the week and his agent confirmed his death on February 27, saying the cause was end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Nimoy announced that he had the disease last year and attributed it to years of smoking, a habit he had quit nearly 30 years ago.

    Nimoy was active on social media, and for the past couple of months, he seemed to be sending farewell messages to his fans with words of wisdom and sentiment that ended with “LLAP” — “live long and prosper” — a phrase made famous by Nimoy and his character Spock:
