On this day in 1920 James Montgomery Doohan was born. The Canadian actor, author and soldier, best known for his role in the television and film series Star Trek.

Doohan served in the 14th Field Artillery Regiment of the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division. He also served as a pilot. He saw combat in Europe during World War II, including the D-Day invasion of Normandy, in which he was wounded and saved by a silver cigarette case gifted to him by his brother.

But in 1966 He cemented his place in Geekdom and sci-fi history when he brought to the screen Montgomery "Scotty" Scott, the Engineer aboard the Enterprise in the original series of Star Trek. He would go on to reprise the role in the animated series and later in the Motion picture and its sequels. Doohan during the production of the first film helped create the language of Vulcan and Klingon!
