Until I started using the Internet and reading Trek sites I never noticed Doohan was missing a finger.
That's exactly what I mean. I'm not trying to give a view of a fanatic like some are here. You have to go from the view of someone that just watches the shows or doesn't know the inside of the people. If you just are a fan and watch the shows there's not really much clear evidence of Scotty having no middle finger. Just a couple of shots and you can't tell 100% sure on most of those.
