News broke earlier today of the passing of Leonard Nimoy at 83 after an illness. An accomplished character actor by the time Gene Roddenberry had cast him as the cerebral, emotionless Mr. Spock, Nimoy proved he was much more than one role. After Trek ended its initial run in 1969, Nimoy moved over to Paramount stablemate Mission: Impossible, replacing Martin Landau as the resident master of disguise for the IMF team.
In the mid-70's, Nimoy returned to science fiction, serving as host-narrator for In Search Of..., a syndicated series that was later revived on cable. In tribute, we present an episode of In Search Of.....
SyFy is already making plans to honor Nimoy with a 5 hour marathon that includes some classic Trek, including the movie, "The Undiscovered Country", as well as an appearance on Twilight Zone.
Rest in peace, Leonard. Live long & prosper.
