Respect

We're not ones to jump on a bandwagon here at the Junkyard. We pride ourselves on reporting on the lesser-known stories surrounding our favourite over-looked system. But the passing of Leonard Nimoy is an event that cannot be ignored by any media outlet - especially one influenced by the talents of such an iconic entertainer.

Mr Nimoy, as you probably know, was the voice of Caution: Seaman for Western gamers - at least for those whom SEGA deemed worthy. As a resident of the United Kingdom, I personally never experienced a PAL version of Caution: Seaman but I have played the NTSC-U game, and the reassuring dulcet tones of Leonard Nimoy eased me into a game released in an era way before celebrity voiceovers were even a recognised marketing tool. The Dreamcast Junkyard, regardless how unimportant we are, would like to recognise Leonard Nimoy's contribution to games and his outstanding career as an actor and icon.

He was a great director and I really enjoyed his "I am Spock" book.

Yeah - I also totally forgot that he directed Three Man and a Baby.

Many years ago I did a regular Seaman diary over on the Rllmuk forum, has spoilers of course but was a pretty fun adventure: http://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/179577-a-seaman-diary/?hl=%20seaman%20%20diary
