While filming the highly anticipated Star Trek Beyond the crew members of the Starship Enterprise decided to remember Leonard Nimoy.

It's a part of the Star Trek: To Boldly Go campaign, which has been raising money through Omaze for global causes chosen by the cast over the past month. In the final week, the cast decided to focus on one charity close to the late Mr. Nimoy's heart: The St. Jude's Children's Hospital.

The description of the video tells more:

Zachary Quinto, the cast and crew of Star Trek Beyond honor the legacy of the late great Leonard Nimoy by spotlighting a charity near and dear to the actor's heart.

In addition to the grand prize of a walk-on role in Star Trek Beyond, each week we're randomly selecting an additional winner to join the To Boldly Go Crew. The members of this honorary crew will visit the set, hang with the cast, and watch as they film scenes from the new film.

Every $10 entry supports nine global organizations each nominated by members of the cast. Check out other once-in-a-lifetime experiences at omaze.com.

It's a sweet tribute, especially coming from Quinto, the heir to the Vulcan ears. And surely, we can never remember the life of Leonard Nimoy enough.

William Shatner put out a call to action from all the Trekkies in the world Aug. 1, asking them to take a selfie of Spock's famous salute.

He didn't say what it was for, only that it would be a tribute to the Leonard Nimoy, six months after the actor's death.

Shatner also spoke out on his Who Say page asking for the same thing, without giving a hint as to what he would do with the collection of photos.

On the evening of Aug. 9, he shared what because of all the fan selfies:

The mosaic uses over 6,000 selfies from fans throughout the globe, honoring the late Mr. Nimoy with the 'Live Long and Prosper' salute.

The tribute was also done for the charitable scavenger hunt organization Gishwhes, which is run by Supernatural actor Misha Collins.

Additionally, Shatner tweeted that the mosaic had been submitted for a Guinness World Record. He didn't specify which one, exactly. Most selfie Spock? Best Leonard Nimoy tribute? Most feels on a Monday?

Regardless, it's great.

Canadians and Trekkies have been “Spocking” their five-dollar bills for years, but since Leonard Nimoy’s death there’s a been a surge in people sharing the defaced bills online to pay tribute.

Last week the Canadian Design Resource (CDR) Twitter account encouraged its followers to scribble on former Canadian Prime Minister Sir Wilfrid Laurier’s face to honor Nimoy.



There’s a community on Facebook called “SpockingYourFives” which explains the origins which is says are “shrouded in secrecy.”

Many years ago, some clever individual whos name has no doubt been forgotten in the annals of time noticed that Sir Wilfrid Laurier’s portrait on the Canadian five-dollar bill looked remarkably like a certain famous Vulcan. And thus the Spock five was born. With the advent of the new Canadian five-dollar bill, Laurier looks even more like Leonard Nimoy, ensuring the Spock five has a long and prosperous future.

With the increased attention towards “Spocking,” the Bank of Canada has come out saying that the practice is actually perfectly legal, but they still don’t want you to do it.

“The Bank of Canada feels that writing and markings on bank notes are inappropriate as they are a symbol of our country and a source of national pride,” bank spokeswoman Josianne Menard told theCBC.

Captain Kirk approves:
