When Star Trek first aired, it immediately captured the imagination of countless fans. This popularity was due in no small part to the Canadian actors who made the series the success it became. Montréal-born William Shatner seemed born to play the swaggering leader, Captain James T. Kirk. Vancouverite James Doohan, as chief engineer and miracle worker Montgomery “Scotty” Scott, kept the Enterprise together. John Colicos, from Toronto, starred in only one episode but broke new ground as Kor, the first major Klingon to challenge Kirk and his crew.
Lt. Commander Montgomery “Scotty” Scott
Known as a miracle worker for his ability to engineer last-minute solutions, chief engineer Montgomery “Scotty” Scott boasted more knowledge of his beloved Enterprise than the people who designed the ship. As the trusted third-in-command, Scotty also took the Captain’s chair when Kirk and Spock were called away on diplomatic missions or planetary emergencies.
