Big Bang Theory Honors Leonard Nimoy, Calls Star Trek Icon 'Everlasting'

Leonard Nimoy Big Bang Theory

The Big Bang Theory on Thursday paid tribute to Star Trek icon (and one-time guest star) Leonard Nimoy, who died earlier this week at the age of 83.

At the end of this week’s episode, in which chaos erupted after a visit to the pet store, creator Chuck Lorre’s usual title card was replaced by a black-and-white photo of Nimoy above a simple thank-you message: “The impact you had on our show and on our lives is everlasting.”

In addition to being a personal hero of Jim Parsons’ Sheldon, Nimoy also lent his voice to a 2012 Big Bang episode, in which he spoke to Sheldon through his Spock action figure.

    I was so happy to see that tribute at the end of tonight’s episode. Although Mr. Nimoy was in his 80’s, his death is still so heartbreaking to me. What a loss to so many communities. He will be missed.

    The only classy moment in an otherwise insipid ep. Lorre with his vanity cards what ego.

    Have never watched an episode of this show. Heard about the tribute and was so glad for DISH Prime Time recording. I was so moved by the tribute.

    Darn DVR cut out before the tribute. Irksome… Thanks for filling me in on what I missed though.
