And it is the Vulcan way to dispel a fantasy ideal. Nimoy realizes that not every woman looks like Lieutenant Uhura or Counselor Troi or the Borg chick from Star Trek: Voyager who was married to that Republican sex pervert who ran for senator of Illinois. Some look like Dr. Crusher or Captain Janeway or Whoopi Goldbergs bartender on The Next Generation. And that is okay. Thank you, Mr. Nimoy, for simultaneously stepping beyond Spock and reminding us of the virtues he embodies. Live long and prosper. Leonard Nimoy appears today at 2 p.m. 1001 Bissonnet.
