There never was a Dammit Jim in the original series. Too profane for the sixties.

I was under the impression that he would preface his comment with a dammit, I totally understand that in the sixties it would have been a bit risque. This is probably one of those "Beam me up Scotty" words that were never spoken on Trek, but it has become a part of Trek lexicon,
Thanks for the feedback...

I think it was Dan Ayckroyd as Bones on an SNL skit who started the Dammit Jims...
