Kate Mulgrew, Star Trek: Voyager's Captain Janeway, has joined the long line of Trek luminaries to pay tribute to the late Leonard Nimoy. She posted a statement on her official Facebook page on March 1 that read as follows:
Leonard Nimoy had dignity, gravitas, a witty and irreverent sense of humor, and an intelligence of exceptional size and dimension. In conversation, I always felt as if I couldn't afford to miss a word of what he was saying because he never failed to say something that sprang from a deeply authentic and original spirit. As an artist, his contributions have been inestimable. As a man, he stood quite dramatically alone in his singularity, and that can be said of very few.
