– Show Notes –
Spock’s Send Off in Wrath of Khan
Perhaps the most iconic death to play out in all of Sci-Fi, this pivotal scene from Wrath of Khan showcases the very best of Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner during their Star Trek runs. For our money, the acting is top notch and the feelings are a plenty. If you haven’t watched this classic scene in awhile, we can’t think of a more fitting tribute to the late, great Leonard Nimoy. Oh and we dare you not to tear up a bit as this scene unfolds…
Leonard Nimoy’s Final Tweet
Few have left this world with such profound or widely read words as Leonard Nimoy, who’s final tweet resonated with equal amounts of reflection and wisdom. A fitting exit for a man who lived long and certainly prospered during his celebrated life.
A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP

This Week’s Dope
NASA’s Nimoy Tribute – The internet was a buzz with heartfelt words and tributes to the iconic Leonard Nimoy upon learning of his passing… and rightfully so. Though there were many great pictures shared, the Vulcan Salute Astronaut Terry Virts blessed us with on Twitter was, for me, easily the most… dope. Cheers to you Mr. Virts, thank you for my inspiration this week.
Blade Runner – The year is 2019 and the sci-fi cityscape is Los Angeles; you already know Blade Runner is the dope that had my mind a buzz and of course a spotlight goes to the composer of the score, Vangelis, who delivered an equally rapturous soundscape to compliment Ridley Scott’s futuristic vision.
