James Doohan lost his finger fighting the Nazis. I would hope a little more respect could be shown for his sacrifice.

Grow up.

Mods, please lock this thread.

I don't recall Scotty going down to the Nazi planet in that "TOS" episode. Are you sure your not getting him confused with someone else?

James Doohan, not Scotty. He fought with the Royal Canadian Artillery during World War 2, and was shot in the hand on D-Day.

You know...Doohan doesn't care what's said here. His feelings are not hurt nor his dignity offended.

Wow, learn something new every day... And now I am somewhat ashamed... For as much as I watch trek, I've never noticed that digital error...

Do you want to start that thread, or should I?
Jayrath is mistaken. This particular trait has been mocked thoroughly on this board.

As I recall, it was in excellent taste, and the poster was made a moderator.

What ever happened to that classy, classy guy?

It never really appeared on-screen -- they were diligent about always keeping his right hand positioned just so that you couldn't tell.

I didn't know about it until I met Doohan at an autograph session in 1987. Actually, I didn't notice even then (starstruck at the time), until my Dad asked me afterward why he was missing a finger. It was clear in a snapshot he took.

so, will scotty be seen with a cornetto in his right hand whenever he is onscreen?
Theres two whole new movies in that reply...

Scotty turns round in his chair and asks if Lt Mike Invadedparis if he wants anything from the mess room. Upon coming back, there is a starfleet news report of an infectious desease spread from a crashed transport ship leaking toxic radioactive waste in the sector.

slowly, the crew star taking on zombie characteristics, eating people. The first of the zombies are all, conveniently enough, wearing red.

Scotty and Invadedparis then embark on a shipwide quest to reach The Shuttle Bay (A local bar near the back end of the ship) where they wait out all the zombified people.

Invadedparis accidentally hits the com panel and Kevin Riley singing Kathleen very loudly booms over the shipwide speakers, thus, the zombified crew break down the doors and kill their crew buddies and bite Mike.


Mike becomes infected and Scotty locks him in his office where he has set up the Playstation 400.

*Credits*




The sequel, to be realeased shortly, is a completely different box of frogs altogether.

The best shot for spotting it is when Scotty walks into the bar on K-7 with an armful of tribbles - he couldn't really hide his right hand in that situation. Unfortunately, my Google-fu was weak the other night - that was actually the picture I was looking for.

Look also when Scotty is in the access crawlway in "That Which Survives" -- the closeup of his hands when he's manipulating the magnetic probe is about as clear as it gets. There's another shot in "Cat's Paw" in which Scotty is holding a phaser on Kirk and Spock where it's fairly easy to make out.
