With the passing of Leonard Nimoy, the world has done everything and anything to show that they appreciate, love, and will miss “Mr. Spock.” The Star Trek great died on Friday at the age of 83, and it hasn’t taken long for many to show their salutes to him. EPIX and SyFy have decided to do it by showing some of the fantastic things that Nimoy has starred in.
IGN has reported that there will indeed be a Leonard Nimoy marathon on Sunday, March 1. From 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., enjoy five hours of shows featuring Nimoy and learn that he was more than just Mr. Spock. All times listed below are Eastern.
9 a.m. – The Twilight Zone: A Quality of Mercy
9:30 a.m. – Star Trek: The Next Generation – Unification Part I
10:30 a.m. – Star Trek: The Next Generation – Unification Part II
11:30 a.m. – Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country
Star Trek VI was the final movie in the franchise that had the original cast.

We stood on your shoulders, and wouldn’t have had a galaxy to explore if you hadn’t been there, first. Thank you, Leonard, Rest in peace.

For those that are not familiar with Leonard Nimoy‘s work, but know who he is, take the time to watch these television shows and movies. His talent was immense and what he could do was immeasurable.
There are sure to be many more Leonard Nimoy tributes and marathons coming over the coming days, next few weeks, and possibly throughout the year. His work will always be frozen in time and it will indeed live long and prosper.
