By now you may be aware that Leonard Nimoy passed away at the age of 83 in Los Angeles today. Nimoy was a sci-fi and pop cultural icon, best known for his portrayal of Spock, the cerebral half-human, half-Vulcan from the Star Trek franchise who valued logic over emotion. 

Here's a look at how his fellow Star Trek co-stars William Shatner and George Takei reacted to the news. 

The internet will be flooded with remembrances of the life and cultural impact of Nimoy. Here, at the Current, we thought we'd honor Nimoy by pointing out that he was more than his signature Star Trek character. Here's Nimoy performing1967's "The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins" from his his Dot Records album — yes, he had five — Two Sides of Leonard Nimoy. 

You lived long and prospered, Nimoy. May you rest in peace.
