Star Trek Online Pays Tribute To Leonard Nimoy With In-Game Spock Memorials

As promised earlier this week by Star Trek Online executive producer Stephen Ricossa, developer Arc Games has placed not one, but three in-game memorials to the late Leonard Nimoy, best known for playing Spock in Star Trek's various incarnations.

The first memorial can be found on Spock's homeworld, Vulcan, and replaces the fountain players recently assembled at to pay their respects to the talented actor. The second is located on New Romulus, which Ricossa explains the reasoning for:

We will be adding the same statue to New Romulus with the inscription "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few", as building toward Romulan and Vulcan reunification was one of Spock’s great life works. The Romulan Republic would not exist without his teachings. Through the next week we will also hang black flags of mourning in Earth Spacedock, Qo'noS, and New Romulus, so everyone that passes through those hubs will know we have lost someone important to us all.

An in-game plaque is also planned and along with Nimoy, will include the names of a number of now-deceased Star Trek alumni such as DeForest Kelly (Dr McCoy), James Doohan (Montgomery Scott) and Majel Barrett (Christine Chapel and later the ship's computer in the newer series), among others.
