As you likely know by now, Leonard Nimoy passed away last week. And so the internet was full of tributes for the actor. This is one of the best. Now Nimoy has been immortalized in the massively mulitiplayer role-playing game Star Trek Online.
ARC Games added two statues to the MMO to commemorate the actor. This is fitting not only because this is a Star Trek MMO, but because Nimoy also provided some voice work for the game as Spock and as a narrator.
The statues appeared in the game for the first time yesterday and they are placed on Vulcan and New Romulus. Be sure to click on the images above to see them in detail. In addition to the statues, both locations feature a plaque which pays tribute to several prominent Star Trek contributors who have passed on.
Many players made the pilgrimage to Vulcan in the game after Nimoy’s death. Leonard will be sorely missed. He was a great actor and by all accounts a great human being too.
