Leonard Nimoy, the iconic star of "Star Trek" who portrayed the logical, brilliant half-Vulcan, half-human second-in-command on the U.S.S. Enterprise, Mr. Spock, announced that he has attended his last "Star Trek" convention, reports the AP.
Nimoy appeared this past weekend at a convention in the suburbs of Chicago where "Trek" was celebrated on its 45th anniversary. Addressing the Trekkers, the 80-year-old actor gave them the traditional Vulcan greeting — the "V" spread four fingers held up, palm facing out — and said Spock’s famous words "Live long and prosper."
Nimoy spent about an hour discussing his life and career for convention attendees, the story reports.
Creation Entertainment CEO Adam Malin said Nimoy’s involvement in the conventions, which has been ongoing for 30 years, "will be missed."
