The Big Bang Theory co-creator Chuck Lorre (who also created Two And A Half Men) never lets his Executive Producer credit vanity card go to waste.

He uses them for everything from saying thank you for awards to explaining the absence of Charlie Sheen.

But on Thursday night's Big Bang, Chuck took the moment to honor one of the biggest icons the science fiction world has ever known: the late Leonard Nimoy.

He wrote simply:

"The impact you had on our show and our lives is everlasting."

The Big Bang gang were lucky enough to know Leonard personally; the Star Trek star had guest starred on the show as a Mr. Spock action figure.

As important as he was to the sci-fi community, his loss will no doubt be referenced with sadness in future seasons.
