    The Shuttle Enterprise

    In 1976, NASA's space shuttle Enterprise rolled out of the Palmdale manufacturing facilities and was greeted by NASA officials and cast members from the 'Star Trek' television series.

    From left to right they are: NASA Administrator Dr. James D. Fletcher; DeForest Kelley, who portrayed Dr. "Bones" McCoy on the series; George Takei (Mr. Sulu); James Doohan (Chief Engineer Montgomery "Scotty" Scott); Nichelle Nichols (Lt. Uhura); Leonard Nimoy (Mr. Spock); series creator Gene Roddenberry; U.S. Rep. Don Fuqua (D.-Fla.); and, Walter Koenig (Ensign Pavel Chekov).

    NASA is mourning the passing today, Feb. 27, 2015, of actor Leonard Nimoy, most famous for his role as Star Trek's Vulcan science officer Mr. Spock. The sci-fi classic served as an inspiration for many at NASA over the years, and Nimoy joined other cast members at special NASA events and worked to promote NASA missions, as in this 2007 video he narrated before the launch of the Dawn mission to the asteroid belt. Nimoy also was there for the 1976 rollout of the shuttle Enterprise, named for the show's iconic spacecraft.

    I too, want to add my sympathies and sorrow on the death and passing of Leonard Nimoy. No matter that he tried to be logical and totally Vulcan, he always managed to make me laugh and even shed a tear or two now and then. I've seen/heard him in other roles, but to me he will always be Mr. Spock of Vulcan. Live Long and Prosper, Mr. Nimoy. Fly high into the Heavens forever! \\//

    Sheesh, I'm getting too damned old. She was a kid, younger than I when I used to watch that show. So sad to see anyone die that young.

    I feel really bad about this because I just found out about her passing.

    I'm going to miss the prettiest Yeoman in Starfleet.
