Vulcan salute for Nimoy in orbit above Boston Friends of NASA originally shared: NASA Astronaut Terry Virts Salutes Leonard Nimoy from Orbit International Space Station astronaut Terry Virts tweeted this image of a Vulcan hand salute from orbit as a tribute to actor Leonard Nimoy, who died on Friday, Feb. 27, 2015. Nimoy played science officer Mr. Spock in the Star Trek series that served as an inspiration to generations of scientists, engineers and sci-fi fans around the world.
Cape Cod and Boston, Massachusetts, Nimoy's home town, are visible through the station window.
Another one of the legendary Enterprise crew lost... Friends of NASA originally shared: NASA Space Shuttle Enterprise, Leonard Nimoy & Star Trek Tribute Leonard Nimoy, Spock of ‘Star Trek,’ died today at age 83. Friends of NASA: We salute the life and career of Leonard Nimoy. Pictured here are Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, actor Leonard Nimoy and the rest of the principle television cast (except William Shatner) in front of America's first Space Shuttle, named Enterprise, in Palmdale, California, on September 17, 1976.
Representatives of the original Star Trek television series attending the debut of the new Space Shuttle Enterprise, included DeForest Kelly, George Takei, Nichelle Nichols, Leonard Nimoy, Gene Roddenberry and Walter Koenig.
Enterprise was originally planned to be named Constitution and unveiled on Constitution Day (September 17th). However, a letter-writing campaign by Trekkies to the White House changed that when they asked that the orbiter be named after the Starship Enterprise, featured on the television show Star Trek.
Although the Enterprise never flew in space, it was used to test critical phases of landing and other aspects of shuttle preparations. The shuttle was mounted on top of a modified 747 airliner and released over the dry lakebed at Edwards Air Force Base, California to prove it could glide and land safely.

All good things must come to an end. After more than
three years I have finally concluded my reviews of TNG
episodes with "All Good Things".
Star Trek: The Next Generation was definitely a good thing.
And no better title could have been chosen for the series finale. Actually, I think TNG was the best thing that ever happened to the Star Trek franchise since TOS until today. Looking back, however,
it had a slow start. The first two seasons were too much influenced by
TOS. Thery were too busy with presenting some kind of Star Trek that people
seemed to love. The showrunners and writers gradually learned to work with the new characters they had created but it took them quite some time to further develop the Star Trek legacy beyond the mere cosmetic changes since the time of TOS. The holodeck as a new place for adventures of all kinds was instrumental in taking Star Trek to the 24th century, the Ferengi as new villains were not. I think the introduction of the Borg and especially the double feature "The Best of Both Worlds" ultimately set the series apart from its predecessor, and united nerds and "normal" fans in front of the screen. The sixth season became the absolute highlight of the
series, with great original stories and an unprecedented involvement of
the whole main cast. At this time it seemed that TNG could carry on forever.
But all good things must come to an end. It may be some sort of self-fulfilling prophecy that the show went downhill
a bit in its final season. Well, some episodes were simply badly done, such as "Sub Rosa" or "Masks". Others were apparently hampered by the prospect that the series would come to a closure. I like how some story arcs are wrapped up near the end of the series. However, I don't think it was a good idea to introduce new family members of the crew in several episodes, as if the writers were working up a list of relatives to be shown. Likewise, bringing together Worf and Deanna looks like a desperate (and much too late) attempt to get things moving on the romantic side of character relationships. Also, I have mixed feelings about long-standing assets that are falling apart: The warp drive is discovered to damage subspace (although it won't be mentioned again after TNG), the Federation fails to control the situation in the Demilitarized Zone, Wesley
and Ro leave Starfleet for good. It seems like TNG prepares to pass on the baton to the somewhat dystopian
DS9. I love DS9, but it is a different kind of
Star Trek. And although my average rating of TNG episodes gradually went
down to the same level as DS9's, I think TNG is closer than anything
else to the "ideal Star Trek series".
The TNG reviews were the last reviews of
any Star Trek series at EAS that were still missing. But seeing that it has been
over a decade since I watched several of the episodes, I may start over with
Voyager. I intend to add more details, and most likely I will revise my opinion
on some of the episodes. It's time to rediscover another series!
