My mom gave me a book about Leonard Nimoy recently and we talked later about the impact his life had on others and his role in the rebooted Star Trek. One more reason to love my Mom, she loves Trek! We talked about how having Spock (Spock Prime!) show up in the movie bridged the gap between old and new, which in turn prompted me to add it to the list to watch again. I’m sure I heard it the first time, but this time a particular quote stuck with me:
I could not deprive you of the revelation of all that you could accomplish together, of a friendship that will define you both in ways you cannot yet realize.
I’ll have to write more about it some day, for now I just wanted to capture the thought.
