Goodbye, Mr. Spock.


Leonard Nimoy, in his role of the pointy-eared, smart and cool Vulcan, Mr. Spock, was one of the reasons I fell in love with science fiction. He may be gone, but the memories of Mr. Spock’s irrefutable logic will remain forever.

Remembering a few of my all time favorites from Mr. Spock, immortalized by Leonard Nimoy:

Once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.

Without followers, evil cannot spread.

Change is the essential process of all existence.

Insufficient facts always invite danger.

I realize that command does have its fascination, even under circumstances such as these, but I neither enjoy the idea of command nor am I frightened of it. It simply exists, and I will do whatever logically needs to be done.

It is curious how often you humans manage to obtain that which you do not want.

The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, or the one.


S.G. Basu is an aspiring potentate of a galaxy or two. She plots and plans with wondrous machines, cybernetic robots, time travelers and telekinetic adventurers, some of whom escape into the pages of her books. Once upon a previous life on planet Earth, S.G. Basu trained to be an engineer, and her interest in science and her love of engineering shows up time and again in her books.
