Doohan served with the Canadian Army, and lost the middle finger of his right hand when he was shot at Normandy. 

He did his best to conceal the missing finger during his acting career, but sometimes tribbles happen.

Although technically he was not a member of the Royal Canadian Air Force, he was once labelled the “craziest pilot in the Canadian Air Force” due to things like slaloming a plane between mountainside telegraph poles just to prove it could be done (which earned him serious reprimand).

Star Trek: The Animated Series (1973), “More Tribbles, More Troubles”

Made with Vine

Our #tribblemaker day was great fun! Students in the Learning Commons stopped by to take a Break from Busyness and stitch up a tribble to help fill the tribble case in the 50 Years of Star Trek exhibition.

I’ll be in the Learning Commons all week 12PM-3PM if you’re local and you want to make a tribble.

You’ll get a #tribblemaker button and one entry to win the life size Kirk cutout that is in the tribble case in the exhibition.
