Elite Dangerous Adding Nimoy Memorial Station

Game developer Frontier will be adding the Nimoy Memorial Station to its open world space exploration game Elite: Dangerous to commemorate the passing of Star Trek actor Leonard Nimoy.

Elite is the latest MMO to reveal plans to celebrate the life of Nimoy – who played iconic character Spock across a number of different Star Trek shows and films – with Star Trek Online holding a wake on the planet Vulcan, Cryptic promising a permanent memorial soon, and Star Citizen announcing that a tribute to the late actor is in the works.

Michael Brookes, Executive Producer at Frontier, says the station will be positioned “in the LHS 3006 system around the only suitably named planet,” which, of course, is called Vulcan. Brookes confirmed the news on an Elite forum post that was taking name suggestions for a new station in the New Yembo region, for which the overwhelming suggestion was Nimoy. Though, since the Nimoy Memorial Station will be in the LHS 3006 region, the New Yembo contest is still open.

Elite’s planet Vulcan already has a station, the WCM Transfer Orbital, but it is assumed that the Nimoy station will be a new addition, rather than the old station renamed. Nimoy Memorial Station will be added to Elite: Dangerous with the release of the 1.2 update.
