I think James Doohan is the only member of the original "Star Trek" cast I never saw in person. I never met Shatner or Nimoy, though I think I've gotten to at least say hi to all of the others, even if just in an autograph line. But Jimmy and I never crossed paths. I briefly considered going to the "Farewell to Scotty" con in California, but I'm not sure I'd have enjoyed it.

James Doohan has universally been referred to as a wonderful and sweet man, and I'm glad his son Chris pushed to get him a star before he died early this morning. I ended up having a very nice, and surprisingly long, chat with Chris on the phone about a year and a half ago. I've still got his numbers, but I don't think I'll call this week.
