The Tiburon Dims its Lights

nimoy2It is with great sadness that I make this post. Today it has been reported that Leonard Nimoy, who portrayed our beloved Mr. Spock, has passed away.

“Leonard Nimoy, the sonorous, gaunt-faced actor who won a worshipful global following as Mr. Spock, the resolutely logical human-alien first officer of the Starship Enterprise in the television and movie juggernaut “Star Trek,” died on Friday morning at his home in the Bel Air section of Los Angeles. He was 83.

His wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, confirmed his death, saying the cause was end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.” From the New York Times

The USS Tiburon wishes to express its deepest sympathies and condolences to the Nimoy family during this very emotional event.
