Actor Leonard Nimoy has attended his very last Star Trek convention in in Rosemont, Ill. this last Sunday. Nimoy is now 80 years old and ready to ride off into the sunset. The man is officially retired.
Nimoy said the convention in Chicago celebrating the 45th anniversary of Star Trek would be his last. He talked for an hour about his life and career, and thanked fans for their support over the years. According to Trek Movie, he "shared his life story through words, poetry, and pictures. Especially moving were photos of his days as a young man growing up in Boston. He shared many great experiences, discussing how various people, including Senator John F. Kennedy who was a passenger in his cab, had inspired him with their words and deeds." His last words to the audience in attendance were of course, "Live Long and Prosper." And of course he signed autographs, and shared a cake with the sold out house.
Creation Entertainment CEO Adam Malin, who has worked with Nimoy at Star Trek cons for nearly three decades, said that Nimoy "will be missed."
Yes, yes he will.
