Star Trek Star Leonard Nimoy Dead At 83

Filed under: TV NewsR.I.P.Sad Sad

We are so sad to report that Leonard Nimoy has died at the age of 83.

His wife Susan Bay Nimoy confirmed the sad news that the author/actor/poet/musician — best known for his iconic role as Mr. Spock on the original Star Trek — passed away at his Bel Air home Friday morning.

Leonard's death is being attributed to his end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

The star announced he had the disease last year, attributing it to his years of smoking.

Our hearts go out both to his family and to the millions of Trek fans around the world who will be mourning this loss for years.

It is a sad day across the universe.

Now this is an interesting development.

With Star Trek 3 losing two directors, we started to think the sci-fi sequel might never happen. But someone is going to breathe new life into the series.

Someone who's been there all along…

Simon Pegg, who plays Scotty the engineer, has been hired to co-write the next movie!

Seeing as he also co-wrote Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz, we're taking this as a very good sign of things to come!

Simon will be working with Dark Blue creator Doug Jung on the script. And with Fast & Furious director Justin Lin at the helm, this could be the best Trek yet!

Star Trek 3 is set to come out July 8, 2016.

Patrick Stewart Surprises Fan With A Life Threatening Illness!

patrick stewart surprises fan illness

Sir Patrick Stewart is a knight in shining armor.

Dawn Garrigus, is an avid 11-year old Star Trek fan from Statesboro, Georgia. She also happens to suffer from mitochondrial disease, which is a life threatening illness.

Thanks to the the Make-A-Wish foundation, Dawn was not only able to go to Georgia's Dragon Con, she was able to attend a person meet and greet with THE Captain Picard!

According to Dawn, meeting Patrick was like meeting the captain of the Enterprise himself:

"I was shy at first, not sure what to say or talk about, but he kept talking to me. I felt like I was on the Enterprise talking to the captain. And suddenly, I was OK."

We're glad this stellar (and interstellar) meeting could take place.

sir ian mckellan helps star trek fan propose

This is so sweet!

South African director Brett Best wanted to have Sir Patrick Stewart help him in his proposal to his Star Trek fanatic boyfriend Khalid Shawwa.

Unfortunately, Patrick was unavailable. Fortunately, his bestie Sir Ian McKellen was there in his stead.

Here was Gandalf's message for Khalid:

"Khalid, I've got bad news for you. It's good news as well. But the bad news is Patrick Stewart is married. I married him. Well, no, I was the minister at the wedding. He's not available. The good news is that Brett is available. So, think it over. Do the right thing."

We hope Khalid did, and said "yes," and that the two will have a Next Generation of kids.

Ch-ch-check out the sweet proposal…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
