Captain Kirk may have been the lead in Star Trek, but Mr. Spock, as played by Leonard Nimoy, was the star of the show.
With his arched eyebrow and devotion to emotionless logic, he was easily Star Trek fans favorite character and with Nimoy's passing, devoted watchers of the show took to Twitter and other social media to be...well emotional.
First, his last goodbye.
