just finished the dvd box of TOS and am watching the little extras on the last disk
didn't know this about Scotty: Landed on Juno Beach on D-Day as a member of the Royal Canadian Artillery... He was hit by four bullets to the leg, his middle finger of his right hand was shot off, and a bullet struck his chest. His life was saved when that hit a silver cigarette case which had been given to him by his brother.
meanwhile, george takai was in an american internment camp.

Doohan’s son posted a nice thread about this on the anniversary this year.
Artillery Lt. Doohan was one of 14,000 Canadian soldiers who stormed the beach. He once said they were more afraid of drowning than the actual battle. He led his men across an anti-tank mine field. Fortunately none exploded as the men weren’t heavy enough to activate them... pic.twitter.com/rOki0O0cuQ— Chris Doohan (@ChrisDoohan) June 6, 2019

Some have asked if Dad visited Normandy after #DDay. He made a trip back in 1984...a very emotional day. pic.twitter.com/v4N2IwA7ow— Chris Doohan (@ChrisDoohan) June 7, 2019

I just rewatched Star Trek VI, and utterly forgot the arc of Kim Cattrall's role.

Picard's getting most of the hype right now, but I'm also really looking forward to Lower Decks!

I hope they give it the classic Rodenberry nuance.
