The Ready Room: A Star Trek Podcast
171: Farewell, Leonard Nimoy

He inspired generations. As Spock, Leonard Nimoy became one of the most recognizable figures in the world, changing the lives of countless fans, the nature of pop culture, and bringing a rare creative vision and kindness to the world. In his final public statement he said “A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP.” Just three days later, on February 27, 2015, he passed away. The collective reaction from around the world has shown just how much he meant to so many. And in this special episode of The Ready Room, Christopher Jones and Larry Nemecek sit down to reflect on Leonard Nimoy’s life and career.
