The internet is still mourning the loss of a geek legend. Leonard Nimoy, the actor best known for his portrayal of the Mr. Spock on the classic Star Trek series, passed away last week at the age of 83, leaving a pointy-eared hole in our hearts. While Nimoy will always be remembered for his iconic role as the hyper logical Vulcan, a reputation that he fully embraced, Nimoy’s career spanned decades before and after Spock.

In the latest episode of #News, host Anais Fairweather takes a look back at Nimoy’s long career in entertainment and reflects on what the actor meant to us as a culture. From one iconic role came a lifetime of representing progress, inclusiveness, tolerance, and logic. As personal catchphrases go, you could do a lot worse than “Live long and prosper” and that’s exactly what Nimoy did.
