We’ll miss you, Mr. Spock

The USS Angeles dims its starship lights in honor of Leonard Nimoy, who left behind his legacy as Mr. Spock. He died Feb. 27 from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease at his home in the Bel Air section of Los Angeles.
As an actor and as his character, Nimoy  represented the best that people can be. He will be remembered for his integrity, his artistic vision and his commitment to “Star Trek.”
He truly brought humanity to his portrayal of an alien character. And he will be remembered as well for his brilliant work directing “Star Trek IV: The Undiscovered Country” and “Star Trek III: The Search for Spock..” As the executive producer of “Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country,” he co-wrote a story that proved to be an effective metaphor for the end of the Cold War.
Leonard Nimoy, we’ll miss you and will remember the lessons of tolerance, acceptance and peace that you taught us.
— Fleet Capt. Dave Mason, commanding officer, on behalf of the crew of the USS Angeles
