Goodbye, Mr. Leonard Simon Nimoy. You have made my late elementary school years less lonely the day I discovered Star Trek reruns in the UHF channel of the US Navy’s Far East Network, which was the only foreign channel our beat-up black and white TV could receive. While the internet has yet to become publicly available years later, finding old Star Trek books in the local public library became an endless source of joy, because Mr. Spock, an outcast in his own right, would naturally become my favourite character. Spock introduced me to the concept of logical and critical thinking. Your on-screen button pushing has inspired me to be a musical button-pusher. You will always live long and prosper in our dreams, in our minds, and in our hearts.
