RantWoman long ago got to attend a live college campus lecture by Leonard Nimoy. He spoke of how his last name, Nimoy, is (plus or minus spelling, the Russian / (Ukrainian?) word for mute, conflated with speaker of another language. RantWoman notes that point without further comment, not even about Vulcan mind melds.

Nimoy himself ended Tweets: LLAP

and a blog post with ASCII art.


And should one also need to venerate other Star Trek characters with smileys, a list, mostly from leter series.

A blog post with highly visual content about a reply to a young biracial girl, with appreciation of how far at least some of us have travelled about people of mixed race / mixed ethnicity.
