According to sources, actor Leonard Nimoy, who originated the role of Spock on Star Trek from 1966-69, was rushed to the hospital last week after complaining of severe chest pains.

The 83-year-old actor was a long-time smoker, and in February 2014 he revealed that he suffers from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). He also suffers from tinnitus, or ringing in the ears. Fellow Star Trek co-star William Shatner also has the condition, and both men attribute it to a controlled explosion on a 1967 episode of the show.

Although there is no word on his current condition, Nimoy was active on Twitter over the weekend.

We wish Mr. Spock a speedy recovery. LLAP.
