Leonard Nimoy’s passing last week prompted an outpouring of mourning from fans, with tributes and memories appearing all over the internet and beyond—with of course many references to the actor’s iconic Star Trek character, Spock. Canadians have been defacing five dollar bills in Spock’s honor even prior to Nimoy’s death. Also, if you didn’t know, now you know (my cat).
Here at FPR we would like to pay tribute to Leonard Nimoy in the best way we know how: by repurposing the language of his most famous character into poetry. Tip: write a poem using Spock’s language in which the source/original voice cannot be recognized.
Here are some sources for getting started:
- IMDB Spock character quotes
- Star Trek dialogue
- More Spock quotes
- The origins of 11 famous Star Trek lines
