The body language for McCoy is spot on. That's a real gift.

Hmm. Don't know what came over me. I'd say it's either due to posting before fully waking up, or because it's Devil's Night--and thus the demons haunting the industry and the fanbase are at the peak of their power.

For my own sake, I'll guess the latter!

Is that something that needs explaining

I'll hazard a guess that it involved a razor and a mirror.

In the Blu-Ray commentary for TMP, Daren Dochterman theorizes that Scotty's moustache is a sentient being, so maybe there is a story behind McCoy's beard...

Has anyone ever heard a "story" behind Scotty's moustache in the films? As a kid, I always thought he looked very different with it.

With hindsight, I've started to wonder if it was something Doohan oroginally grew to try and look less like Scotty. Although if that was the case, I wonder why he kept it for the films.

Had he stayed clean-shaven in the films and used the moustache only on other projects, would that have worked? Has anyone ever seen photos of Doohan clean-shaven post-1980?

Maybe he grew a mustache because mustaches were, y'know, fashionable?

I'm planning a Scotty appearance in one of the McCOY issues -- haven't decided yet if he'll have the mustache.

Seeing a younger, almost TOS-3rd-season-hair-style Scotty with the movie-era mustache might be a neat transitional look.

McCOY takes place very close to TMP, as the good doctor's facial foliage indicates. Even if I decide on a follicle-free upper lip for Scotty, I'll still be referencing TMP for his look.

That might be a good transitional look, too. Hard to imagine movie-era Scotty without the 'stache, but it would help reconcile the fact that James Doohan looked so, so different in the first film from the last time we saw him play the character.

Just wondering, JB:  Do you find having to do a TOS-TMP transition a hindrance, or are you having fun with it?  Meaning for example, does drawing the TMP outfits make you cringe, since your heart is obviously with the Original Series, and THE MOTION PICTURE is, well, nobody's favorite STAR TREK film...?

Careful what you say Shaun. If it weren't for TWOK then TMP would be at the top of my list. I love it & have seen it many, many times.

In case anyone doesn't know, Glenn's 'Untold Voyages' series is available on 'Star Trek: The Complete Comic Book Collection' DVD-ROM compilation.
