“The Big Bang Theory” paid tribute to the late Leonard Nimoy with a special vanity card at the end of Thursday night’s episode.
The message is typically written by the show’s creator, Chuck Lorre, and is usually a long, rambling essay of some sort.
But the message on Thursday was elegant and poignant – a photo of Nimoy and the words, “The impact you had on our show and on our lives is everlasting.”
Nimoy never appeared in person on the show even though character Sheldon Cooper was obsessed with Mr. Spock.

But in one episode, Nimoy provided the voice for a Spock action figure that served as Sheldon’s conscience.
Sheldon, played by Jim Parsons, appeared on the show’s official condolence tweet after Nimoy’s death last week.
