Story Spotlight

Unless you've just been recently resurrected by the Genesis device, you're probably aware that Leonard Nimoy, the 83-year-old actor who attained universal celebrity for his interpretation of Mr. Spock in the Star Trek franchise, passed away this morning.

The Internet has been awash with expressions of condolences and celebrations of Mr. Nimoy's life and cultural impact. All the newspapers and media outlets have already released their obituary notes, including this one in The New York Times. When I read the NYT obit though, I was immediately annoyed by how among all the mentions of Mr. Nimoy's achievements during his long career, it unforgivably omitted the one role which we Forteans will probably remember him the most for: his hosting in the iconical TV series "In Search Of", after he replaced Rod Serling.*

It's hard to tell how many people were introduced to the mysteries of Atlantis, UFOs, Bigfoot and many others, thanks to the appeal of Mr. Nimoy's commanding voice, but I'm sure there's quite a few members of The Daily Grail who wouldn't be reading these lines, if it weren't for the fact that they watched the show when they were kids, and became hooked for life.

So, I thought that a fitting Fortean tribute to Mr. Nimoy would be asking you, the Grail community, to leave a comment in which you could mention your favorite "In Search Of" episodes.

Go boldly to the final frontier, Mr. Spock. We have been and shall always be grateful to you.

(*)Apparently I wasn't the only one who complained, because the obit corrected the omission.
