Scotty appreciation-beam me up

this post is a tribute to james doohan who played scotty on TOS...lets face it he aint gonna be around much longer and will soon join deforest kelly on that big enterprise in the sky so lets take this moment to post our favorite eppy's with him or share any personal experiences u may have had...my favorite eppy was relics from TNG it was his final with the franchise and he was great...starting the eppy as a man ready for retirement and ending it by getting back the same sense of adventure he always had.

as a side note he also just recently got his star on the walk of fame and has permanently retired from public appearances due to his ailments

"It is...green"

The great common link they used between an original series ep and "relics".

In the original, Scotty says it, in Relics, Data says it to Scotty. Tha name of the drink does not matter, but "it is green".

I love parallels like that. And they were both great Scotty scenes.

From Trek Today

By Michelle
August 30, 2004 - 9:57 PM
James Doohan said farewell to the world of Star Trek this weekend at a convention in his honour entitled "Beam Me Up Scotty", attended by the entire living cast of the original series and leading up to the ceremony on Tuesday at which he will be given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Though ailing, Doohan was reportedly in high spirits for this final round of public appearances, attended by fans as well as actors, family members and an astronaut.

The Associated Press (via The Mercury News) reported that the 84-year-old "Scotty" actor blew kisses to fans during events held to benefit a research foundation for Alzheimer's disease, from which Doohan suffers. The actor's son Chris Doohan credited Star Trek fans with helping raise money for the actor's star.

The Los Angeles Times' Richard Fausset wrote from a ballroom at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel that "the denizens of this peculiar universe stood united: the valiant Starfleet commanders, the fierce Romulan warriors, the pimply speculators in the action figure market", noting that fans had paid up to $995 to take part in the two-day convention, where Doohan - suffering from Parkinson's disease as well - spoke at a news conference and circulated among fans.

"Some of the hundreds who made the trip for the chance to see him one last time said they paid the admission because over the years, the man they knew as Scotty always took the time to talk to them, sign autographs and chat about alternate universes, obscure plot points and spaceship specs," Fausset said. Chris Doohan observed that while many actors become upset about typecasting, "that didn't concern him, because he was typecast as Scotty...it's been his bread and butter."

TrekWeb has posted a report sent in by a fan, who first visited the dealer's room and saw Roddenberry On Patrol and the auction at which Doohan's outfit from Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. Then William Shatner (Kirk) and Leonard Nimoy (Spock) held a panel at which they "insult[ed] each other for an hour", with Nimoy joking about Shatner's weight and Shatner claiming that when he named a price for appearing on Star Trek: Enterprise, the producers seemed less interested in having him appear. After a taped tribute, Doohan himself appeared in a motorized wheelchair with his family and was greeted by astronaut Neil Armstrong.

Planet Xpo put on the convention last weekend. Doohan will receive his star in front of the Hollywood Entertainment Museum at 7021 Hollywood Boulevard at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday.

For some reason that strikes me as the perfect retirement for Scotty.

'Star Trek' Actor James Doohan Receives Star




LOS ANGELES - "Star Trek" actor James Doohan _ famed for his portrayal of "Beam Me Up" Scotty, the intrepid engineer who kept the starship Enterprise warping across galaxies _ grinned and waved to fans Tuesday as he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

It was expected to be the last public appearance of the 84-year-old performer, who was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and also suffers from Parkinson's disease, diabetes and lung fibrosis.

The ceremony on Hollywood Boulevard was the culmination of several days of farewell activities that brought Doohan back into contact with many of this longtime fans.

George Takei, who played Sulu on "Star Trek," told the crowd: "This is a galactic day in this town full of stars.

"We've gathered from throughout this planet to say congratulations to you, Jimmy," Takei said. "We love you and we thank you for your luminous talent. We thank you for the gift you have given us of that unforgettable character, that ingenious and beloved engineer that was able to fix anything."

Other "Star Trek" cast members to attend were Nichelle Nichols, who was Uhura on the series, and Walter Koenig, who played Chekov.

"He's a wonderful friend, a beautiful person," Nichols said of Doohan. "There is no one better than he, and no one more deserving. We all love this man."

Koenig said he felt great companionship with Doohan after decades of working together, from the original TV series in 1966 to their last film in 1994, "Star Trek: Generations."

"This star is a recognition of a man's talent, his endurance and the effect that he's had on people all over the world," Koenig said.

Doohan did not speak to the crowd, but he waved and posed for photos before leaving with his family.

Thanks for the article PPD.
Alzheimer's is such a terrible disease. My one grandmother suffered from it.

What's really sad is that not only does he suffer from Alzheimer's disease but he also suffers from Parkinson's disease, diabetes and lung fibrosis. I can't imagine what his family has to go through with him.

I was so sad when I found out about his illness. Especially since he and his wife had a child fairly recently.

I love Scotty, and always will. "Relics" is personal favorite of mine too.
