RIP Leonard Nimoy

I am very upset. I started crying a while ago and I can't seem to stop.

I mean, I can say all the obvious things about watching Star Trek, watching the reruns of TOS and TAS as a little kid. When you're incredibly lonely and too smart for your own good, Trek was like having this whole awesome group of friends and family you could go to when your real family and friends were inadequate or nonexistent. And you grow up from that and get the real thing, eventually, but Trek is still your safety blanket. To me and to a bunch of others, losing Leonard Nimoy feels like losing a parent, or maybe worse.

ETA: Okay, I just had an epiphany about the grief so many of us feel for Leonard Nimoy today.

He was basically our Uncle Iroh. I think we all wanted, very much, to be the people he would have wanted us to be,
