James Doohan got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame! Finally, after all these years, the genius that is "Scotty" is recognized. Now that I really stop and think about it, he is probably my favorite Star Trek character. Nothing is quite so cool as when Scotty starts to lose it in the engine room! He is also responsible for my favorite post-original series moments... particularly the guest appearance he had on Next Generation and his work in Star Trek IV ("Computer? Hello computer!").
I wish him nothing but the best...
Photos by Jason DeFillippo from the induction ceremony can be found on Blogging.LA. It looks like some other Star Trek faces showed up including Nichelle Nichols, George Takei, Walter Koenig, and Grace Lee Whitney? That's pretty swell of them. Is there a transcript of the speeches floating around the Internet? I'd love to read what everybody said.
I love comments! However, all comments are moderated, and won't appear until approved. Are you an abusive troll with nothing to contribute? Don't bother. Selling something? Don't bother. Spam linking? Don't bother.
It was a pretty weepy thing I must say. He didn’t even speak and stayed in his wheelchair. I’m glad I got the shots. There was a TON of people there and it was pretty hard to get as close as I did.
Great shots! Thanks for sharing them with us. No surprise about the turn out… all of the original Star Trek crew is much beloved. In looking through the crowd, I notice that “Headmaster Hanlin Charleston” from Gilmore Girls (played by Dakin Matthews) is there!
My favouritest ever Scotty line was in Star Trek III the Search for Spock, where he says to a turbolift “Up your shaft!” .. cracks me up every time 🙂
