Two statues have been placed in MMO Star Trek Online to honour the recent passing of Spock actor Leonard Nimoy, and a plaque dedicated to other notable actors who have influenced the Star Trek universe has also been added.
Nimoy, who passed away last week at the age of 83, was mourned by fans around the world. Regular players in Star Trek Online chose to pay their respects by logging into the game and congregating on Vulcan.
"Based on where our community chose to congregate and pay their respects, we will be replacing the central structure on the fountain on Vulcan with a stone statue of Spock with the inscription 'Live Long and Prosper'," explained executive producer Stephen Ricossa in post.
"We will be adding the same statue to New Romulus with the inscription 'The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few', as building toward Romulan and Vulcan reunification was one of Spock's great life works. The Romulan Republic would not exist without his teachings. Through the next week we will also hang black flags of mourning in Earth Spacedock, Qo'noS, and New Romulus, so everyone that passes through those hubs will know we have lost someone important to us all."
