Scotty, you'll be missed

I just heard on the radio news that James Doohan passed away.

'Bye, Scotty

The info I’ve read says he was 85 when he died. So he was born about 1920. Star Trek was on the air 1966-1969. Was he really almost 50 when the show ended filming? He didn’t look nearly that old.

Heh. Mark Lenard quietly shaved three years of his age too; he was born in '24. Like Doohan, a WWII veteran; American paratrooper in his case.

Back to the main CS thread.

Beamed over to Cafe Society.

We got several threads on this, I’m keeping the longest one open, so go here to comment:
Bye, Scotty
