Leonard McCoy

Leonard Horatio McCoy, M.D. is a fictional character in the fictional Star Trek universe, played by the late DeForest Kelley (January 20, 1920 - June 11, 1999). In Star Trek: The Original Series, he was one of the three main characters and the humanistic counterpart to the logical Spock.

Leonard McCoy was born in 2227 and attended the University of Mississippi from 2245 to 2249 and medical school from 2249 to 2253. In 2266 he was named Chief Medical Officer on the Enterprise NCC-1701 under Captain James T. Kirk with the rank of Lieutenant Commander. By retirement, his rank was Admiral.

He appeared at the age of 137 years in "Encounter at Farpoint", the first episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. McCoy had no actual further appearances in the the Next Generation or any of the following television series. McCoy was shown briefly in the Deep Space Nine episode "Trials and Tribblations." However this was footage from the original "The Trouble with Tribbles" episode. McCoy has made appearances in several Next Generation era novels. It's unclear whether or not the McCoy character is still alive as DeForest Kelley passed away in June of 1999. The passing of Kelley would probably preclude McCoy from making any further appearances in either a movie on Trek related television shows.

  • "Dammit, Jim! I'm a doctor, not a magician!"
  • "Why you green blooded, inhuman..." (To which Spock replies, "That is correct, Doctor.")
  • "You're talking about universal Armageddon!"
  • (Talking to Data)"Don't see no points on your ears boy, but you sound like a Vulcan."
