Beam Me Up, Scotty

Star Trek's Scotty, James Doohan, received his own star on the Hollywood walk of fame Tuesday. The 84 year old actor is suffering from multiple ailments and was recently diagosed with Alzheimer's, so this may be his final public appearance.

In typical fashion, George Takei (Sulu) was quoted as saying, "This is a galactic day in this town full of stars." (Really trying not to be snarky here, but he's not making it easy.)

  1. When original cast members make remarks like Sulu's, all I can think of is Alan Rickman at the electronics store opening in "Galaxy Quest" intoning, with perfect disdain, "By Grapthar's hammer . . . what a savings."

    Of course, we expect Takei-like remarks from our actors in almost every context. Heck, Ah-nuld was doing it in the opening of his speech to the RNC last night.
