James Montgomery "Jimmy" Doohan (/ˈduːən/ DOO-ən; March 3, 1920 – July 20, 2005) was a Canadian character and voice actor best known for his role as Montgomery "Scotty" Scott in the television and film series Star Trek. Doohan's characterization of the Scottish Chief Engineer of the Starship Enterprise was one of the most recognizable elements in the Star Trek franchise, for which he also made several contributions behind the scenes. James Doohan started the Klingon and Vulcan languages. Many of the characterizations, mannerisms, and expressions that he established for Scotty and other Star Trek characters have become entrenched in popular culture.

Following his success with Star Trek, he supplemented his income and made numerous public appearances. As a result of his portrayal of Scotty, Doohan inspired many fans to pursue careers in engineering and other technical fields.

Biography

Doohan was married three times and had seven children, four of them—Larkin, Deirdre, twins Christopher and Montgomery—with his first wife Janet Young, whom he divorced in 1964. His marriage to Anita Yagel in 1967-72 produced no children. In early 1974, he was introduced to 17-year-old fan Wende Braunberger at a theatre performance. They were married that same year, when they were 54 and 18, on October 12, 1974. Star Trek actor William Campbell served as best man. Doohan and Braunberger had three children: Eric, Thomas, and Sarah in 2000, around his 80th birthday. In his later years, Doohan suffered a multitude of health problems partially from his lifestyle, which included prodigious alcohol consumption, and partially from injuries sustained during WWII. These included diabetes, liver cirrhosis, osteoarthritis, high blood pressure, and hearing loss. In July 2004, he announced that he was suffering from Alzheimer's Disease and Parkinson's Disease and would be withdrawing from public life.

His sons Montgomery and Christopher appeared in Star Trek: The Motion Picture in 1979 and in the J. J. Abrams reboot Star Trek 2009. Simon Pegg, who played Scotty in the film, invited the Doohans to the premiere. For Star Trek Into Darkness in 2012, fans campaigned for Christopher Doohan gaining him a cameo in the transporter room. Chris Doohan plays Scotty in the 2013 web series Star Trek Continues.

Après cette mission manquée, Kirk se questionne sur son rôle dans Starfleet.
