Leonard Nimoy Is Offering to Be Everyone's Grandfather

Leonard Nimoy, the actor who played Spock on Star Trek, mentioned his granddaughter on Twitter. Then he offered to adopt as his honorary grandchild anyone who is interested. The responses flooded in.

If you've claimed Mr. Nimoy as your grandfather, you've made a highly logical choice.

LLAP, by the way, stands for "Live long and prosper." Mr. Nimoy always closes his tweets with that salute.

My mother knows Star Trek, but she doesn't know the name Leonard Nimoy. We figure it's better to err on the side of more information you don't need, than less information than you need.

Not everyone.

We try to make references explicit. That's actually in our authoring guidelines. We can't assume that readers know all of our favorite shows. Tragically, some people lack an even passing familiarity with Star Trek.
