James Doohan, the original Star Trek's "Scotty", appeared at his last convention on Sunday. The 84-year-old actor was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease several months ago.

Doohan will be awarded with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Tuesday, which is expected to be his last public appearance.

Sigh. First Bones. Now Scotty. It's like watching the Beatles go.

I'm glad they're giving him a star. But yeah, we're all becoming old farts.

At least we have the Captain and Spock doing Priceline commercials for us. (And rather funny commercials, too. Especially the duck.)
