    • During Jimmy's early stage work, he demonstrated a remarkable gift for foreign accents. He tried several during his audition for Star Trek (1966), and Gene Roddenberry was immediately taken by his Scottish brogue. After being cast as the as-yet unnamed ship's engineer, the two men improvised the name "Montgomery Scott" ('Scott' for the accent, and 'Montgomery' for Doohan's middle name).
