Boldly go Mr. Nimoy, your absence will be felt by me and my fellow Trek fans. The world for me is a sadder place today.

After receiving career advice from an actor in another Odets play making its pre-Broadway debut in Boston, he submitted an application to California's Pasadena Playhouse. Nimoy would then relocate to the West Coast using his earnings from selling vacuum cleaners. " ...
