It was a Texas stamp they issued,
and they issued a sheet
that told about the background
of Texas and all that.
I ordered it
from the post office
and framed it for him
since he's from Texas.
Spiner: I don't get
much stuff anymore
because I've sort of let it be known
when I've done conventions and stuff
that it wasn't necessary and it wasn't
really a good idea because--
that the people should be spending
their money on me, you know? Ha ha!
I mean, I tried
to express that we do OK
and that they should really,
you know, save their money.
Woman: It's not about the money.
It gives me a good feeling.
I like to do that
for my friends, too.
If I can find
something unusual--
I like to get unusual gifts
for people.
After I'd lived here
about a year
and I found out
where Brent lived,
I realized I could just see--
I can't see his house,
but I can see the hill--
the top of the hill
that he lives at the bottom of
from the balcony,
and so when I'm stressed out,
I come out here sometimes
and just sit out here for a few minutes
to take what I call
a "Brent break"
and just kind of gaze
off in that direction
and daydream
for a little while.
Crosby: What are some
of your favorite things
that you like to do
at conventions?
Ever heard of filking?
No. Tell me what that is.
Science-fiction
folk singing.
Uh, could you explain that?
Well, actually
I could give you an example.
Perfect.
Uh, episode of the original series
called "Space Seed,"
which was the launching
for the second movie,
The Wrath Of Khan.
There is a song.
The song is called Vow of Vengeance.
It's Khan's vow.
Let's-- Let's see.
& The summer sunlight &
& The howling at night &
& The blood of friends spilled &
& On the sand &
& I'll meet some quick death &
& She breathes her last breath &
& And dies as I cling to her hand &
& Mere mortals you be &
& The truth you can see &
& You think you have right but-- &
[Quietly]
And you-- Wait, wait.
It's been a while
since I've sung it.
& You think-- &
No.
Action!
An alliance
with the Borg?
Janeway:
More like an exchange.
If we teach the Borg how
to modify their own nanoprobes,
they'd have a blueprint to create
a weapon to fight the aliens.
Cut!
When I am asked to go
to a hospital,
it's a specific boy,
and he's not going to be there
the next time I go
to that hospital,
and it means a great deal to him
that I be honest with him
in that hour that we share
together, you know?
That can change your life.
There's a woman
who's almost totally paralyzed,
and she was able
to just kind of
with the help
of an interpreter say,
"For the hour
that you are on"--
meaning Star Trek is on--
"l forget the body
that I am imprisoned in."
I got a fan letter
from a young lady.
It was a suicide note.
So l, uh-- I called her.
I said,
"Hey, this is Jimmy Doohan--
Scotty of Star Trek."
I said, "I'm doing
a convention in lndianapolis.
I want to see you there."
I saw her.
Boy, I'm telling you--blah.
I couldn't believe what I saw.
That was--
She was definitely suicidal.
You know...
somebody had to help her
somehow, you know,
and obviously
she wasn't going
to the right people,
you know.
Anyhow, I said to her--
I said, "I'm doing a convention
two weeks from now in St. Louis,
and two weeks from then
in something," you know,
and then eventually--
she also came to New York.
She was able to afford
to go to these places
and everything else, so, uh...
And then that went on
for 2 or 3 years...
maybe 18 times...
and all I did was talk
positive things to her,
and then all of a sudden--
Pfft! Nothing.
I didn't hear anything,
and I had no idea
what was happening to her
because I really never saved
her address, right?
8 years later,
I get a letter...
saying, "l do want
to thank you so much
for what you did for me
because I just got
my master's degree
in electronic engineering."
You know, that's...
to me, the best thing
I've ever
