"When it came to the attention of the cast that there was a disparity in pay in that George and I were getting the same pay but Nichelle was not getting as much, I took it to Leonard and he took it to the front office and they corrected that.

You could count on Leonard for that kind of thing."

-Walter Koenig.

 

The man had so much class.

Such a legend. I remember him as the host on In Search of..., and playing the role of Paris in Mission: Impossible. More recently he guested on Fringe. Of course Mr. Spock is who I'll remember him most as.

Of course we never knew the real Leonard Nimoy but he as Mr. Spock (and not forgetting James Doohan as Scotty) had a huge influence on the lives of my family. My kids and husband went into various branches of Engineering because of the positive role of Mr. Spock. He had many roles but I would like to remember Leonard Nimoy/Mr. Spock as an educator and a positive force for good.

Ok ok I'll pretend to refuse to watch,

Nice find, Tor!

 

I'll bet when Big Bang Theory does address it (albeit a season later), it will be with a reference to rock-paper-scissors-lizard-...
