    I cannot express the emotions I felt when I first read that this would be Mr. Leonard Nimoy’s final appearance at a Star Trek convention… I felt that, pretty much, Star Trek was coming to an end. I understand now that, while Trek must be very important to him (as he has shown), his true life is even greater– and he must fulfill it. His photography and all future endeavors are, and will be, magnificent accomplishments!

    I did also read somewhere that he wished to spend more time with family… I respect that immensely.

    Good luck, Mr. Nimoy.
    Live Long and Prosper.
