stuhayes2010: Bucky Katt: FTFA: which ultimately resulted in him losing his middle finger
I never noticed that.

He hid it.  Like Radar on MASH hid his hand deformity by always holding a clip board.


Kind of like how Martin "Marina" Sirtis always tucked his photon torpedo between his legs when he played Deanna Troi. It would have spoiled the image of him as a 'sexy ship's counselor' otherwise. "Mirage a Troi", they used to call it on the set...

An engineer without a middle finger?  How did he communicate?

Happy Hours: What about the guy right next to him who the Nazis other Canadians all missed?

He's not a hero?

The shot to the chest likely would have been fatal except that he had a silver cigarette case there,

See? Proof that smoking saves lives.


What are you, f'ing stupid?  SILVER.  It means they were Nazi Werewolves.  That's why he survived due to the silver which repulsed the Nazi werewolves.

Had a friend who went on one of those 'Star Trek theme cruises' that featured Doohan along with a few of the other main actors. Melvin is one of those people who can mimic other people to an amazing degree. He was standing with Doohan watching the people board when a couple of really chunky ladies waddled up to the boat. Melvin put on a near-perfect Scotty voice and bellowed "Captain, there be WHALES here!" and Doohan went nuts laughing.

So there are some German people who can probably say that they had relatives who were killed by Scotty.

MayoBoy: Bucky Katt: FTFA: which ultimately resulted in him losing his middle finger

I remember when we used to make fun of his Canadian accent.  He'd get so pissed that he'd try to flip us off but there was nothing there.  Good times, good times.


So.... Scotty wasn't really Scottish?

I guess he was crap, then.

Damn, way to go Scotty!


"I'm giving her all she can take, Cap'n!"

It's generally known in Canada that the only way to have made Star Trek more Jewish and more Canadian would have been to have Lorne Greene as a guest star.

You now who else was missing his middle finger?

Yeah, and he was cool with it :)


And still pretty cool without it.

Silverstaff: Bucky Katt: FTFA: which ultimately resulted in him losing his middle finger

I never noticed that.

They carefully edited around it.  In some shots in engineering he was intentionally wearing gloves (or had his hands inside a console working on it) to hide it.  Most of the time they just never showed his hands up close.  It was one of the reasons you always saw Scotty working on something.

Kind of like how Gary "Radar O'Reilly" Burghoff from MASH has a deformed hand as well, which is why he was often seen holding a clipboard, it covered it up.

As for World War II heroics and Star Trek, Gene Roddenberry was a Captain in the US Army Air Corps, serving as a B-17 pilot and flew 89 combat missions and was awarded the Air Medal and Distinguished Flying Cross.


Though in The Trouble With Tribbles, there's a scene in which Scotty is holding a bunch of tribbles in the transporter room and you can see his (almost) hole hand. As a kid I just thought his finger was covered by one of the props.

/or Scotty was giving a tribble a UFIA...
