Cryptic Studios will honor Leonard Nimoy with a permanent memorial in the massively multiplayer online game Star Trek Online, the developer has announced.

"I want to once again express my heartfelt condolences to the friends, family, and fans of Leonard Nimoy," Cryptic Studios Executive Producer Stephen Ricossa said in a post to the game's official forums. "Everyone at Cryptic Studios was saddened to hear of his passing and we want to make sure we never forget the cultural impact of the man or the character he played. To that end, the Star Trek Online team will implement a standing in-game memorial to Spock and Leonard Nimoy this Thursday March 5th with our regular weekly maintenance."

Star Trek Online players have already gathered to pay their respects to Nimoy independently yesterday, as you can see in the picture above.

Nimoy, who's best known for his role as Spock in the original Star Trek series in the 1960s, passed away yesterday.
