    Star Trek's Scotty Gets A Star on the Walk of Fame

    The 84-year-old's attendance at the ceremony was expected to be his final public appearance.

    He was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and also suffers from Parkinson's disease and diabetes.

    Doohan has spent the past few days meeting fans to say farewell and thanking them for their support.

    Star Trek co-stars at the Walk of Fame ceremony included George Takei, who played Sulu, Nichelle Nichols, who was Uhura, and Walter Koenig, who played Chekov.

    Yeah, so did I, but I guess you grow out of it after a while.

    I still love the old Star Trek stuff.
    And the Star Trek movies I can watch time and time again.

    I wonder why Kirk and Spock were not there. They should have been!

    I agree! It feels a bit like a slap in the face. And it's about d*** time James Doohan got recognition!! He's Canadian, btw.

    Saw him when he was in edinburgh for a star trek exhibition, didn't half get some stick for his accent. What's wrong with being a trekkie, it's not like playing golf or something is it?
