Scotty beamed up

Categories: Obituary
James Doohan is dead at 85. And here's the best bit of the wire service obit that the Strib is carrying--Doohan's 1998 revery about the good old days on Star Trek:

"I started out in the series at basic minimum--plus 10 percent for my agent. That was added a little bit in the second year. When we finally got to our third year, Paramount told us we'd get second-year pay! That's how much they loved us."

He accused Shatner of hogging the camera, adding: "I like Captain Kirk, but I sure don't like Bill. He's so insecure that all he can think about is himself."
