We need to all send our “live long and prosper” well-wishes toward Leonard Nimoy. The 82-year-old actor was rushed to the hospital with severe chest pains.

Law enforcement sources say the legendary “Star Trek” star was transported to UCLA Medical Center last Thursday.

We’re told paramedics weren’t taking chances with Captain Spock and got him in front of a doctor ASAP. Nimoy’s been in and out of hospitals multiple times in the last few months.

Nimoy announced last year that he’d been diagnosed with COPD, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, from years of smoking.

Luckily, he seems to be well enough to tweet. This was his most recent tweet, from late last night.

All of our good thoughts to Nimoy and his family. He has been, and always shall be, our friend.
