For fans of classic Star Trek who want to see quality stories done in the spirt of the original series, you have a treat this week. The consistently excellent web series Star Trek Continues has put out its eighth episode, “Still Treads the Shadow”, and as usual, it does not disappoint.
In my short time as an entertainment writer and blogger, I’ve had the opportunity to meet many of my childhood icons. Legends I grew up rushing home after school to watch on TV and gawked at in wonder on the silver screen. Not everyone in the world can say they’ve met Captain James T. Kirk, Han Solo, Indiana Jones, Darth Vader, Frankenstein’s Monster, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, and so many others I can’t even remember. One of the most memorable encounters was with the man who brought Mr. Spock to life – Leonard Nimoy.
Long before the internet and the ‘age of the geek’, a man wearing pointy ears made it cool to be a computer whiz. Leonard Nimoy will forever be remembered as that Vulcan science officer from the starship Enterprise, Mr. Spock. Sadly, he has left this world now, but while he was here, he lived long and he prospered.
