The days following Leonard Nimoy’s death last week have seen all forms of celebrities offering heartfelt messages and tributes for the Star Trek actor. And there’s no surprise that Chuck Lorre, creator of the Nimoy-loving hit sitcom The Big Bang Theory, paid his respects on national television through the personalized vanity cards he puts up at the end of each episode.
