Leonard Nimoy, known as Mr. Spock on the original television series “Star Trek” died on February 27, 2015. He was eighty-three. Cause of death: chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
William Shatner (Capt. Kirk) is the surviving member of the trio who starred with…
DeForest Kelley – Dr. Leonard “Bones” McCoy. Death by stomach cancer – June 11, 1999.
A brief comment on the new “Star Trek” movies – starring whomever is in them. (Does it matter?) This film contained a lot of big special effects, a loud soundtrack and the current style of non-acting I despise. These aren’t actors. They parrot lines and pretend. I didn’t believe them for a minute. In fact, I fell asleep.
Some viewers of the original series have commented on the “cheesy” special effects. First of all, I don’t agree. Secondly, good writing makes good science-fiction, not a lot of CGI-video game effects. People who don’t like the original should stick with their own miserable mindlessness.
Whether you like them or not, can you tell me of any other actors who could portray Kirk, Spock and McCoy? DeForest Kelley is the real unsung hero of “Star Trek”. His intense performances are often overlooked.
For me, “Star Trek” was over some time ago. Paramount will continue to redo it; however, the original is still the best.
