Leonard Nimoy passed away today, and you probably already know that, because the internet is now filled with tributes to the man, most of them Spock-themed. This isn't something I’d normally write about, because the passing of a great actor isn't really PC news. He lent his voice to a few games, however, including Star Trek Online and Civilization IV.
