Posted on February 27, 2015 | in Uncategorized | by
Actor Lenoard Nimoy spoke at Eastern Kentucky University on Feb. 16, 1978. Nimoy was known for his role as Mr. Spock in the "Star Trek" TV series and movies. When he spoke at EKU in Richmond, filming for the science-fiction series had been completed 10 years ealier. But Nimoy told the crowd, "it's had an amazing afterlife." As proof, a boy about 4 or 5 years old slipped down the aisle to the Hiram Brock Auditorium stage and called for Nimoy to hold him. Nimoy picked him up, carried him to the microphone and said, "See, there is magic in the character. There are lots of reasons to respond to Spock. ... we all sense his dignity."
