On the box

‘Star Trek’ star James Doohan has Alzheimer’s
From July 2004

• Lord, in Thy mercy: hear our prayer.
• Nice fellow as far as I can tell — this World War II Canadian Army veteran became American TV’s most famous Scotsman, a serviceable semi-comic music-hall/vaudeville impersonation. This article describes his other talents and exploits, some of which I didn’t know about (he invented the Klingon language for the movies!).
• It seems the fan conventions became his main activity; most of the old show’s actors seem to really like the fans and be grateful for them.
• Glad he got a star in the pavement on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame a month after the news about his health.
