*THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED. CAL STATE LONG BEACH WILL RESCHEDULE. GO HERE FOR UPDATES.* Although he made his screen debut in the 1952 serial, Zombies of the Stratosphere, it took a string of television appearances in shows such as Bonanza and Perry Mason before Leonard Nimoy finally stumbled upon the role that would land him in TV icon history books. As the always stoic Mr. Spock (unless he was stranded on an ice planet with Mariette Hartley or glimpsed in an evil parallel universe sporting a goatee), Nimoy became a beloved house guest in millions of sci-fi-lover's homes. While a brief stint as a songbird didn't quite tilt the cosmos in his favor ("The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins" notwithstanding), Nimoy never shied away from alternate gigs or reprising our favorite Vulcan. Catch the legend this week and get your Trek on!
