Many of the characterizations, mannerisms, and expressions that he established for Scotty and other Star Trek characters have become entrenched in popular culture.
Outside of his performances in Star Trek and other television shows and films, Doohan was also a wounded combat veteran of World War II. Following his success with Star Trek, he supplemented his income and showed continued support for his fans by making numerous public appearances. Doohan often went to great lengths to buoy the large number of fans who have been inspired to make their own accomplishments in engineering and other fields, as a result of Doohan's work and his encouragement. Doohan was considered by some to be one of the most giving and affable stars of the Star Trek franchise. 
Doohan, pronounced /ˈduːən/ (DOO-ən), was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, the youngest of four children of Sarah and William Patrick Doohan, recent Catholic refugees from predominantly Protestant Bangor during the Irish War of Independence (also known as the Anglo-Irish War).

Sarnia is a City in Southwestern Ontario, Canada (city population 71419 census area population In addition to his studies at Sarnia, Doohan enrolled in the 102 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps.
At the outbreak of the Second World War, Doohan, aged 19, joined the Royal Canadian Artillery, and was eventually commissioned as a lieutenant in the 13th Field Regiment, part of the divisional artillery of the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division. World War II, or the Second World War, (often abbreviated WWII) was a global military conflict which involved a majority of the world's nations, including The Royal Regiment of Canadian Artillery ( Fr: le Régiment royal de l'Artillerie canadienne is the Artillery Personnel branch of the Canadian History The formation of the Canadian 3rd Infantry Division was authorized on 17 May 1940. Doohan went to the United Kingdom in 1940 for what became years of training. His first combat assignment was the invasion of Normandy at Juno Beach on D-Day. Normandy (Normandie Norman: Normaundie) is a geographical region corresponding to the former Duchy of Normandy. D-Day may also refer to Decimal Day in the United Kingdom. D-Day is a term often used in Military parlance to denote Shooting two snipers along the way, Doohan led his unit to higher ground through a field of anti-tank mines and took defensive positions for the night.

The Bren (from '''Br'''no, the Czechoslovak city of design and '''En'''field, the location of the British Royal Small Arms Factory The bullet to his chest was halted by the silver cigarette case he carried, and his wounded right middle finger was amputated, which he would conceal during his career as an actor. A cigarette case or cigarette box is a sturdy most commonly metal container to store small amounts of Cigarettes safely from crushing However, despite his efforts, the missing finger can be seen in the Star Trek episode Trouble with Tribbles, as well as Tomorrow is Yesterday. " The Trouble With Tribbles " is a second-season episode of Star Trek The Original Series, first broadcast on December 29, 1967 and " Tomorrow Is Yesterday " is a first-season episode of Star Trek The Original Series.
Despite his injuries, Doohan remained in the military, trained as a pilot and flew an artillery observation plane. He flew Taylorcraft Auster Mark V aircraft for 666 (AOP) Squadron, RCAF, as a Royal Canadian Artillery officer in a flying role in support of #1 Canadian AGRA (Army Groups Royal Artillery). The Taylorcraft Auster was a British military liaison and observation aircraft produced by the Taylorcraft Aeroplanes (England Limited during No 666 Squadron was originally an RCAF Air Observation Post (AOP squadron formed during the Second World War.

Though he was never actually a member of the Royal Canadian Air Force, he was once labeled the "craziest pilot in the Canadian Air Forces. " One of the many legendary stories of his flying years tells of Doohan slaloming a plane — variously cited as a Hurricane or a jet trainer — between mountainside telegraph poles to prove it could be done, which earned him a serious reprimand. 
After the war, Doohan started his acting career. Disheartened by the laughable quality of a radio drama, he privately studied Shakespeare. William Shakespeare ( baptised His work began with a CBC radio show appearance on January 12, 1946. Events 475 - Basiliscus becomes Byzantine Emperor, with a coronation ceremony in the Hebdomon palace in Constantinople Year 1946 ( MCMXLVI) was a Common year starting on Tuesday (link will display full 1946 calendar of the Gregorian calendar.

Richard Allen Boone ( June 18 1917 &ndash January 10 1981) was an American Actor who starred in over 50 films and was notable For several years Doohan would shuttle between Toronto and New York as work demanded. During this period he appeared on some 4000 radio programs and 400 television programs, and earned a reputation for his versatility. In the mid-1950s he appeared as forest ranger Timber Tom (the northern counterpart of Buffalo Bob) in the Canadian version of Howdy Doody. Howdy Doody was a children's television program (with a decidedly frontier/western theme although other themes also colored the show Coincidentally, fellow Canadian and Star Trek cast member William Shatner appeared simultaneously as Ranger Bill in the American version. William Alan Shatner (born March 22, 1931) is a Canadian double Emmy - Golden Globe - and Saturn Award -winning

Doohan always had a gift for using foreign accents. Auditioning for the role of Montgomery Scott, Chief Engineer of the USS Enterprise, before Gene Roddenberry (the creator of Star Trek), Doohan did several different accents. The USS Enterprise (NCC-1701 is a Starship in Star Trek, which chronicles the vessel's mission "to explore strange new worlds to Eugene Wesley "Gene" Roddenberry (August 19 1921 &ndash October 24 1991 was an American Screenwriter and producer. Roddenberry asked which he preferred, and Doohan reportedly replied "If you're going to have an engineer, you'd better make him Scottish" (or "All the world's best engineers have been Scottish"). Scotland ( Gaelic: Alba) is a Country in northwest Europethat occupies the northern third of the island of Great Britain. In later years he would revisit this casting process at Star Trek conventions, demonstrating a variety of possible voices and characters. When Roddenberry produced Star Trek: The Animated Series in the early 1970s, Doohan's ability to perform different voices was utilized by having him perform most "guest star" male roles in the series, including Robert April, conjectured first captain of the Enterprise. Star Trek The Animated Series (also known as The Animated Adventures of Gene Roddenberry 's Star Trek) is an Emmy Award winning Robert T April is a Fictional character in the Star Trek universe
The Scott character, as conceived, would have been a semi-regular, but just as fellow cast members Leonard Nimoy, as the alien science officer Spock, and DeForest Kelley, as the irascible medical officer Dr. McCoy, were elevated in importance to leads alongside William Shatner's Capt. Leonard Simon Nimoy (born March 26, 1931) is an American Actor, Film director, Poet, Musician and Spock (sometimes referred to as Mr Spock) is a main character in the original Star Trek TV series Jackson DeForest Kelley ( January 20, 1920 – June 11, 1999) was an American actor known for his starring role as Dr Leonard H "Bones" McCoy, played by DeForest Kelley, is the Doctor character in the original Star Trek series and the first six William Alan Shatner (born March 22, 1931) is a Canadian double Emmy - Golden Globe - and Saturn Award -winning James T. Kirk, it was made clear that, owing to his high technological orientation, LCDR Scott was the third-in-command of the Enterprise, and at times the ship was left in his care. Scott was frequently used in subplots regarding disabled ship components (such as the dilithium crystals which powered the warp drive, the transporter teleportation device, or just fiddling in the Jefferies tubes) and as a foil for Kirk's ambitious tactical approaches, which were said to strain the propulsion and defenses of the starship. In the Star Trek universe, dilithium is a fictional Chemical element, although the name also applies to a real-world molecule. Warp drive is a form of Faster-than-light propulsion in the Fictional universe of Star Trek, capable of propelling spacecraft or objects to many multiples A transporter is a fictional Teleportation machine used in the Star Trek universe Jefferies tubes in the Star Trek Fictional universe, are small Tunnels or Corridors that provide access to Critical In this capacity, Scott proved to be as much of a tinkerer, or improvisational engineer, as a high-tech specialist, often apparently holding the Enterprise together with little more than baling wire and his own spittle. In the end, many fans saw the Enterprise itself as the show's star, leaving Scott in an enviable position as her defender. For example, in "The Trouble With Tribbles", Scott stands idly by and even keeps Chekov from starting any trouble as a Klingon insults Kirk; however, Scott is finally provoked into violence when the Klingon insults the Enterprise itself. " The Trouble With Tribbles " is a second-season episode of Star Trek The Original Series, first broadcast on December 29, 1967 and Klingons ( Klingon: tlhIngan; Pronunciation /ˈt͡ɬɪŋɑn/ are a warrior race in the fictional Star Trek universe
Doohan was often quoted as saying, "Scotty is ninety-nine percent James Doohan and one percent accent. "
Using his considerable vocal skills, Doohan devised the Vulcan and Klingon language dialogue heard in Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Vulcans are a Humanoid species in the fictional Star Trek universe who hail from the planet Vulcan, and are noted for their attempt The Klingon language ( tlhIngan Hol in Klingon is the Constructed language spoken by Klingons in the fictional Star Trek universe Star Trek The Motion Picture is a 1979 Science fiction film from Paramount Pictures.

In addition to playing Scotty, he also did many guest voices on Star Trek including:
After the series ended, Doohan found himself typecast and had a hard time getting other acting roles.

Unlike some other members of the cast, Doohan relished meeting fans and was always ready to entertain with a story - or a song.
Otherwise, he had minor, fleeting parts, often trading on his Trek fame, such as the Captain in the short-lived Saturday morning live-action kids' show, Jason of Star Command, or a cameo in the made-for-TV movie Knight Rider 2000 as "Jimmy Doohan, the guy who played Scotty on Star Trek". Jason of Star Command was a live action Television show by Filmation which ran between 1978 and 1981. A cameo role or cameo appearance (often shortened to just cameo) is a brief appearance of a known person in a work of the Performing arts, such as Knight Rider 2000 is a 1991 Sequel movie to the television series Knight Rider. He also had a role in the lowbrow space comedy Homeboys From Outer Space, in which he played a character named Pippen: a double pun on Scotty and basketball star Scottie Pippen. Scottie Maurice Pippen (born September 25 1965 is an American retired Professional Basketball player who played in the National Basketball
When the Star Trek franchise was revived, Doohan reprised his role of Scotty in seven Star Trek films and made a guest appearance on Star Trek: The Next Generation, all of which left him financially comfortable. Star Trek The Next Generation ( STTNG or TNG) is an Emmy and Peabody Award-winning science fiction television program created by Gene Roddenberry Even so, he would never return to the busy, versatile career he once had. Many of Doohan's film appearances did center on the role of Scotty, such as a cameo in National Lampoon's Loaded Weapon 1, where he plays a policeman who tells his superior officer "I am giving it all she has got, Captain!" in the same accent he used in Star Trek. A cameo role or cameo appearance (often shortened to just cameo) is a brief appearance of a known person in a work of the Performing arts, such as National Lampoon 's Loaded Weapon 1 (also known as Loaded Weapon 1) is a 1993 Comedy film, directed by Gene Quintano However, he refused to contribute to the Futurama episode "Where No Fan Has Gone Before" or allow his image to be used in it, and was "replaced" in the episode by the created character "Welshie". Futurama is an Emmy Award -winning animated American sitcom created by Matt Groening, and developed by Groening and "Where No Fan Has Gone Before" is the eleventh episode of the fourth season of the Animated series Futurama.
Although he continued to work with William Shatner in the Star Trek movies, in private life Doohan didn't care for him, and was once quoted as saying "I like Captain Kirk, but I can't say that I'm very fond of Bill," declining to be interviewed by Shatner for Shatner's two "Star Trek Memories" books about the show. William Alan Shatner (born March 22, 1931) is a Canadian double Emmy - Golden Globe - and Saturn Award -winning However, an Associated Press article published at the time of Doohan's final convention appearance in late August 2004 stated that Doohan had forgiven Shatner and they had mended their relationship.

Many fans told Doohan over the years that it was he who inspired them to choose engineering as a profession. Astronaut Neil Armstrong, an engineer before he participated in the NASA's Apollo Project, noted this also, personally telling Doohan on stage at Doohan's last public appearance, "From one old engineer to another, thanks, mate. An astronaut or cosmonaut (космона́вт) is a person trained Neil Alden Armstrong (born August 5 1930 is a former American Astronaut, Test pilot, University Professor, and United States The National Aeronautics and Space Administration ( NASA, ˈnæsə is an agency of the United States government, responsible for the nation's public space program "
In the 1997 documentary Trekkies, Doohan relates an emotional, uplifting story. A female fan had sent him a suicide note. Doohan immediately contacted the fan and arranged to speak with her at his next convention appearance. Doohan continued to see her at several other conventions, but ultimately didn't hear from her for several years. Doohan, visibly moved by relating this tale, then reveals the reason for the eight-year-long silence: He received one final letter from the previously distraught fan, thanking Doohan for his kindness and comforting words, and informing him that because of his encouragement, she had successfully gone back to school and earned a degree in Electrical Engineering.
Doohan suffered from Parkinson's disease, diabetes mellitus, and pulmonary fibrosis in later life. Parkinson's disease (also known as Parkinson disease or PD) is a degenerative disorder of the Central nervous system that often impairs the sufferer's Diabetes mellitus (ˌdaɪəˈbiːtiːz or /ˌdaɪəˈbiːtəs/ /məˈlaɪtəs/ or /ˈmɛlətəs/ often referred to simply as diabetes ( Ancient Greek: grc Interstitial lung disease (ILD, also known as diffuse parenchymal lung disease (DPLD, refers to a group of Lung diseases affecting the Interstitium In 2004, he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.

On July 20, 2005, at 5:30 in the morning, James Montgomery Doohan died at his home in Redmond, Washington with his wife Wende and long-time friend and agent, Steve Stevens, at his side. Events 1304 - Wars of Scottish Independence: Fall of Stirling Castle - King Edward I of England takes the last rebel stronghold Year 2005 ( MMV) was a Common year starting on Saturday (link displays full calendar of the Gregorian calendar.

In what may be regarded as an ironic coincidence, Doohan died on the anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar landing, arguably the greatest engineering achievement in human history.
Almost two years after his death, approximately one-quarter ounce (7 grams) of Doohan's ashes were sent into space, as he had requested in his will. The ashes, along with those of Mercury astronaut Gordon Cooper as well as almost 200 others, were launched on the SpaceLoft XL rocket, on April 28, 2007, when the rocket briefly entered outer space in a four-minute suborbital flight before parachuting to earth, as planned, with the ashes still inside.

On July 31, 2005, the Skip Barber Racing School paid tribute to Doohan by dedicating the traditional race weekend's "Memorial" race as the ""Beam Me Up, Scottie!" Memorial" during the series' visit to Circuit Mont-Tremblant. The Skip Barber Racing School is headquartered in Lakeville, Connecticut, United States. Circuit Mont-Tremblant is a race circuit about north of the village of Mont-Tremblant Quebec, Canada. 
Doohan's passing was the fourth major loss for fans of Original Star Trek, after Trek creator Gene Roddenberry's in 1991, Mark Lenard's in 1996 and DeForest Kelley's death in 1999.

Since in Star Trek lore Scotty was born in the town of Linlithgow, Scotland, the West Lothian Council plans to place a commemorative plaque in the town in memory of Doohan.
