The Final Frontier

Born March 3rd, 1920, James "Scotty" Doohan met the Final Frontier July 20th, 2005, solidifying his immortality not only as a great character actor who, week-after-week coaxed the Enterprise into "Givin' it all she's got!" but a true Hollywood legend. I say character actor not as a bad thing as some of the most memorable Hollywood icons were portrayed by character actors. After all, they have all the best lines! Generations to come will shout out in their best Scottish burr "She canna take much more, Cap'n!" or "She's gonna blow!" Actors of the day will come and go, but guys like Scotty will live forever...
