Leonard Nimoy on developing

Leonard Nimoy is Star Trek and Star Trek is Nimoy. That’s been what every Star Trek convention had showed.

The most famous character in the franchise, Nimoy is saying farewell to his pointy Vulcan ears and the Star Trek Convention. Nimoy, 80 years old, made his final goodbyes to die-hard fans and trekkies at the Star Trek Con on Chicago.

He made his famous and iconic four fingered salute and said his final “Live Long and Prosper.” Nimoy has been Spock for four decades and he thanks everyone for everything. He tweeted, "So much to be thankful for. The wave of kindness from the crowd. My family there. LLAP."

Nimoy was last seen as Spock in JJ Abrams’ hit reboot Star Trek in 2009. He has now passed his pointy ears to Zachary Quinto and will focus more on non Star Trek endeavours like voicing a Wise Eagle in the upcoming animated film Zambezia.

Goodbye Spock. Live long and prosper.
