I have shared from time to time that I don’t care to read science fiction. The elements that aren’t dreary: love, family, friendship, compassion, and humour; come from the actors who bring our beloved characters and worlds to life. I *would* gladly read autobiographies of the actors and happen to have a few of them here at home.
I do enjoy watching select science fiction. I’ve never been to a convention, I’ve never tried on a uniform, nor do I own Vulcan ears…. but I am a devoted, passionate Trekkie! The kind who feels annoyed, if people reference Star Trek; without familiarity beyond the first two series!
You are a FAN… *if* you know “Deep Space 9“, “Star Trek Voyager“, and “Enterprise“.
I love them all! Chris Pine’s new Star Trek films are excellent too and it does my heart good to look forward to more of them.
There’s no one more special: as a character spanning decades, photographer / author / actor…. than Leonard Nimoy. I am shocked to discover this humble, dignified, compassionate 83 year-old has passed away at his home today, from a respiratory condition.
I am saddened his time came to leave Earth and will miss him tremendously. In this, I am definitely not alone. God speed to you, Leonard, from me in Manitoba! ~Carolyn~
