Star Trek Online‘s Tribute To Leonard Nimoy Is Beautiful

Leonard Nimoy’s passing last week spawned some beautiful tributes to the man who brought Spock to life. Now there are two statues in his honor that you can visit in Star Trek Online.

The first is on Vulcan and the second is on New Romulus which is a part of the parallel universe that was created after Star Trek XI and is the time during which the game takes place. Vulcan was chosen as Spock’s home planet of course, and New Romulus for all of Spock’s work with the Romulans after the original series.

Nimoy’s name also appears on permanent plaques installed in the game’s three main hub zones of Earth Space Dock, Qo’noS, and New Romulus. The plaques contain the names of fellow original series cast members and creators that we’ve lost: Majel Barrett, James Doohan, DeForest Kelley, and Gene Roddenberry. Lastly, the hub zones will display black flags of mourning for the next week.

See another picture and video of Nimoy recording for the game after the break.
