Star Trek Online in-game Leonard Nimoy memorials unveiled

Statues added to Vulcan and New Romulus.

Star Trek Online developer Crytic Studios has now added its in-game memorials dedicated to the late, great Leonard Nimoy.

Statues of Nimoy's Spock can now be found on the MMO's versions of New Romulus and Vulcan, at the fountain where players gathered last Friday after hearing of Nimoy's passing.

The statue on Vulcan is emblazoned by Spock's oft-quoted phrase "Live Long and Prosper".

Meanwhile, his memorial on New Romulus carries the inscription: "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few."

Both statues also feature a memorial plaque with the names of other Star Trek greats no longer with us: Majel Barrett (Nurse Chapel and Lwaxana Troi), James Doohan (Scotty), DeForest Kelley (Bones) and Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry.

Fellow sci-fi MMOs Elite: Dangerous and Star Citizen will both add their own tributes to Nimoy in the coming days.

"People will be able to interact with this memorial and read the names, the dates of their birth and passing, and a personal quote where possible," Star Trek Online executive producer Stephen Ricossa explained in a new blog post.

"In this small way, we hope to honour the memory and contribution of those who helped shape Star Trek into the cultural touchstone it is today."
