Leonard Nimoy, world famous to Star Trek fans through a beloved TV series and a half-dozen films as the pointy-eared, purely logical science officer Mr Spock, has died.

Nimoy’s son Adam said the actor died this morning in Los Angeles of end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. He was 83.

Although Nimoy followed his 1966-69 Star Trek run with a notable career as both an actor and director, in the public’s mind he would always be Spock.

His half-human, half-Vulcan character was the calm counterpoint to William Shatner’s often-emotional Captain Kirk on one of television and film’s most revered series.
