Host of "In Search Of..." dead at 83

One of my favorite moments with Leonard Nimoy was seeing him at Dragon*Con in 2009. He was scheduled for a session on the last day of the con, and was on stage with a panelist who asked all the questions. (You don't let random con attendees stand at microphones to ask Leonard Nimoy random questions. You just don't.)

Midway through the session, he was joined on stage by William Shatner, who had also been at the con but hadn't been able to stay beyond the first day, making a surprise re-appearance.

The two of them, who've legitimately been close friends for fifty years, had an incredible conversation in front of us. The panel moderator wisely sat quietly and watched, as we did.

Nimoy & Shatner
