How well know is McCoy in the 24th century?

I think this sounds super likely especially with the iguana clue, just curious about whether McCoy would be known as well as Kirk.
Well, Janeway did go on about how she'd have loved a mission or two with Kirk's crew and McCoy was still in service in the 24th century, an Admiral inspecting the E-D so I'd say in Starfleet in general and Starfleet Medical in particular, McCoy is indeed well known.

While he likely doesn't have to, it very obvious that The Doctor is breathing.

He is moving his tongue, moving his lips. The Doctor basically talks and sings like a Human does.

Is McCoy famous? Helped cure the common cold didn't he?

Re: The Doctor and McCoy

I guess that's true. If a pair of holographic lungs can transport oxygen into the bloodstream, then a holographic larynx could produce sound. It just seems needlessly complicated.

And yes, if Janeway knew all about Kirk's missions, I'm sure she knew McCoy was his chief medical officer.

Also, how could McCoy not be famous? He's awesome.

Re: The Doctor and McCoy

McCoy is one of the most famous doctors in the history of Starfleet. So it would be inconceivable that the EMH would NOT include McCoy's medical knowledge and experiences.

The burning question is, if the EMH actually met McCoy face to face (which is possible, as McCoy is still alive as of this show), how would they get along?

There is no way McCoy would treat him as anything but a pretty toaster.

Re: The Doctor and McCoy

As a CMO's tool, the EMH should be customizable into any male/female/other appearance desired by the physician. It should also be able to function as a nurse, which could be helpful on smaller ships.

I can just see McCoy reprogramming the EMH into a more comely shape..

Every time I see 'comely' used, I'm reminded of the Nichelle Nichols "She's black!" story.

Re: The Doctor and McCoy

No, during TOS, Jerry Finnerman was setting his key lights on Uhura. When the key spot isn't aimed properly, in lighting jargon they're 'black'. So Finnerman's hollering up to one of the guys on the light rig, saying "No, no, she's black! She's black!"

Then he realizes Nichelle is sitting right there and tries to apologize. She cuts him off with "...but comely." Then later, Nimoy and others could break her up by coming up beside her and saying softly "but comely."

I think Steven Whitfield tells the story in The Making of Star Trek.

I haven't watched TOS as much as the other series, but didn't Bones say once that he'd rather resign than be replaced? I'm sure he would hate the idea of a piece of technology taking the place of a flesh-and-blood doctor. He'd probably treat the Doc even worse than Zimmerman did in "Life Line".

On another note, I just found this on Memory Alpha:

Holographic Doctors, under development in the 24th century, included McCoy in their templates.
Well. There you go. It's not corroborated by any references to episodes, but I suppose if you accept Memory Alpha as a credible source, then that answers that question.

Imagine an EMH with the appearance and voice of Beverly Crusher, but the personality of Louis Zimmerman.

Re: The Doctor and McCoy

Now I'm imagining Beverly saying, "All of us have violent instincts. We have evolved from predators... Well, not me, of course. I've just been programmed by you predators."

What I want to know is, what in heaven's name made Zimmerman think that Andy Dick was an improvement over the Mark I?

The Bashir model was the way to go.
