Photo Memories

On Thursday, March 5 Star Base Columbus held a special memorial open house to honor the life of Leonard Nimoy, a.k.a. Mr. Spock.  Several dozen Trek fans braved the cold to attend the event. Below are some photo memories of the evening.

RIP Leonard Nimoy

March 26, 1931 - February 27, 2015
And so another crew member of the original USS Enterprise has gone on to the final frontier:

The crew of Star Base Columbus wishes to express our heartfelt condolences to the family of Leonard Nimoy.   Mr. Spock has always been a favorite in the Star Trek Universe and has touched the hearts of millions of fans.  Leonard Nimoy will remembered for many things and greatly missed by all.

From the Wrath of Kahn:

Kirk: We are assembled here today to pay final respects to our honored dead. And yet it should be noted that in the midst of our sorrow, this death takes place in the shadow of new life, the sunrise of a new world; a world that our beloved comrade gave his life to protect and nourish. He did not feel this sacrifice a vain or empty one, and we will not debate his profound wisdom at these proceedings. Of my friend, I can only say this: of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most... human.
