Artists Say Goodbye to Spock and Leonard Nimoy

Posted: March 1, 2015 in Movies



The death of Leonard Nimoy deserves a memoriam not full of celebrity tweets and quotes but full of love, life and Spock in his own words.

So this tribute art to the greatest Vulcan who ever lived is also filled with the wisest thing he ever said as both Spock and himself.

Tribute by Doaly

I’ll never really understand why I was chosen to play Mr. Spock. In a metaphysical sense, there seemed to be a sort of inevitability involved…. When I was called to meet Gene Roddenberry, I assumed I was to be auditioned. I didn’t quite know how to react when I discovered that I was being “sold” on the role.


Computers make excellent and efficient servants, but I have no wish to serve under them.
–SPOCK, Star Trek: The Original Series, “The Ultimate Computer”

Tribute by Dutch Uncle

Spock is definitely one of my best friends. When I put on those ears, it`s not like just another day. When I become Spock, that day becomes something special.

Without followers, evil cannot spread.
–SPOCK, Star Trek: The Original Series, “And The Children Shall Lead”


Tribute by Nick Caldwell

You know, for a long time I have been of the opinion that artists don’t necessarily know what they’re doing. You don`t necessarily know what kind of universal concept you’re tapping into.

Change is the essential process of all existence.
–SPOCK, Star Trek: The Original Series, “Let That Be Your Last Battlefield

Tribute by Andy Marlette

Art, if it is successful, needs no explanation. Star Trek and Spock, if they are works of art, can be discussed. But finally the response comes in individual terms. Each viewer sees what is there for him, depending on his frame of reference.

Insufficient facts always invite danger.
–SPOCK, Star Trek: The Original Series, “Space Seed”

Tribute by Francesco Francavilla

When you
let me take
I’m grateful.
When you
let me give
I’m blessed.

I have never understood the female capacity to avoid a direct answer to any question.

Tribute by Kevin Tong

The miracle is this: the more we share the more we have.

I realize that command does have its fascination, even under circumstances such as these, but I neither enjoy the idea of command nor am I frightened of it. It simply exists, and I will do whatever logically needs to be done.
–SPOCK, Star Trek: The Original Series, “The Galileo Seven”

Tribute by Artist Abe Lopez

Whatever I have given, I have gained.

Vulcans never bluff.

Tribute by Brian Kesinger

Logic is the beginning of wisdom, not the end.

It is curious how often you humans manage to obtain that which you do not want.
–SPOCK, Star Trek: The Original Series, “Errand of Mercy”

Tribute by Lord Mesa Art

I am not Spock. But given the choice, if I had to be someone else, I would be Spock. If someone said, “You can have the choice of being any other TV character every played,” I would choose Spock. I like him. I admire him. I respect him.

Once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.
–SPOCK, Star Trek (2009)

My folks came to U.S. as immigrants, aliens, and became citizens. I was born in Boston, a citizen, went to Hollywood and became an alien.

“Captain, you almost make me believe in luck.”
Spock, Star Trek

Tribute by Patrick Ballesteros

I think about myself as like an ocean liner that’s been going full speed for a long distance, and the captain pulls the throttle back all the way to ‘stop,’ but the ship doesn’t stop immediately, does it? It has its own momentum and it keeps on going, and I’m very flattered that people are still finding me useful.
Leonard Nimoy

“If I seem insensitive to what you’re going through, Captain, understand – it’s the way I am.”

That is the exploration that awaits you! Not mapping stars and studying nebula, but charting the unknown possibilities of existence.
