ROSEMONT (AP) -- Leonard Nimoy has attended his final "Star Trek" convention.

The man famous for portraying Mr. Spock flashed the Vulcan sign on Sunday and told fans gathered in the Chicago suburb of Rosemont to "live long and prosper." Nimoy has said the convention celebrating the 45th anniversary of "Star Trek" would be his last and he hopes to focus on other interests.

Fans held signs saying, "We love you Leonard! Live long & prosper." He told them he's grateful for their support over the years. Nimoy gave an hour-long presentation on his life and career.

Adam Malin is a CEO of Creation Entertainment, which runs the "Star Trek" conventions. Malin says the company has toured and collaborated with Nimoy for nearly three decades. He says Nimoy "will be missed."
