After his great legacy as Engineer of the Enterprise, Montgomery Scott, many people across the world were awed and inspired by James Doohan’s skills and grace in acting and humor. He has inspired a generation of engineers and mechanics and brought to the world a sense of duty within the engineering realm.
In 2009, his son, Christopher Doohan was brought to action in Star Trek. The 2009 film saw an alternate parallel timeline formed within the Star Trek universe and with it, a new set of faces as the classic characters. Christopher was brought forth to action as an engineer after a massive fan campaign convinced the studio to bring him aboard.
Now, three years later, fans attempt to do the same. Across Facebook and Twitter, fans have already begun their attempts to convince Paramount to bring back Christopher Doohan with the outcry, “The Enterprise Needs a Doohan”. Though his appearance brief in the 2009 film, Doohan was rumored to have portrayed a character from the Original Series by the name of Mr. Kyle.
Fans continue this campaign in hopes of convincing the studio for his return before the film hits theaters on May 17, 2013, 4 years and 9 days since the 2009 film’s release.
