It is not that Nimoy was a better man, or achieved greatness through scientific research, or other expected achievements for popular recognition.

It is, rather, that he reached so many of us, and inspired curiosity and wonder about space, and dreaming of the possibilities of such exploration.

His work, as the role model for so many real life scientists and astronauts, inspired the choices they made which made them actual pioneers for our world.

He may not have gone into space himself, but he inspired many who did.

For a great many of us, we owe him recognition for opening our eyes, and looking to the heavens once more.

Rename Jita to Nimoy, both a fitting memorial and funny to see confused traders.

I've been really sad since hearing of Spock's passing. I have already petitioned CCP for them to put something into the game that nods in his direction. I would like to see an agent created somewhere in EVE probably named something identifiably him. The agent should send you on a humanitarian mission, and the reward should be a book of logic which has his best quotes he is known for. I would particularly suggest his last tweet as well as LLAP.

Leonard Nimoy was such a brilliant actor, Star Trek is a brilliant franchise, and Spock was one of my favourite characters. He ought to be shown the reverence he deserves from a game like EVE Online that has a lot to thank him for, as well as those that made Star Trek what it is. Thank you Spock. LLAP

I support this completely, he was an icon of science fiction that deserves something here in EVE.

Sadly I dont agree with naming the new T3 desse after him, thats a combat ship, and he was not associated with combat or fighting. I think it should be a shuttle, or a science/exploration ship of some sort.

If CCP doesnt agree with the ship idea, then a star, or a system, planet... something. He has more than earned it.

RIP Mr Nimoy, you are mourned by millions.

Supported.


Either a monument, a T3 Dessie or a star called Nimoy.

I very much doubt CCP will do this, love to see it but don't think it will ever happen.

It would set a precedent they would have trouble to maintain in the future. Just think of it, who decides who's going to be included/excluded for this on what criteria? You're stepping into liquid sand here.

Best thing the EVE player base can do, like in 'Vile Rat's' case is to name items ingame themselfs and maintain it that way.


Somewhere around 2009 we, CCP + community lost a member of the community team everybody was very fond off.
No matter the grief we all felt a the time, no in game item was named after her.



It's a nobel idea but....

If there ever was a sc-fi character that deserved a memorial...it's Spock.

A certain modern-day successor to the game that this one was inspired by may have decided to give the name "Nimoy Station" to the structure orbiting a planet that, curiously, was already named "Vulcan" in a star system whose name I have forgotten at the moment.

Even if CCP do nothing (which they very well might), at least something has been done.

For god's sake NO. Way to cheapen the game, Nimoy has nothing whatsoever to do with Eve.

CCP please name the new T3 destroyer Nimoy and have the hull ID read LLAP-2015

1. Add new system named Nimoy

or

2. Create a new ship called "Nimoy" - but not be a warship. Shuttle/science frigate only.

or

3. Add a station

maybe not the Character Spock....but Leonard Nimoy was iconicly deep into the Sci-Fi realms, and actual science stuf as well to include several of those Science/Explore the univers type shows.

How many peeps play EvE or other like games because of things like Star Trek? I know i do. I love space themed games.
