Scotty & Bones have both gone. How long left for the others?
They're all in their 70s now, so there might be some possible candidates for next year.
There were three of us in the morgue so it was rather crowded

They're all in their 70s now

For reference, DOBs of original cast:

William Shatner (Captain James T. Kirk), b. 22 Mar 1931 (Montreal, Canada)
Leonard Nimoy (Lt. Cmdr./Commander Spock), b. 26 Mar 1931 (Boston, USA)
Grace Lee Whitney (Yeoman Janice Rand ), b. 1 Apr 1930 (Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA)
George Takei (Lt. Hikaru Sulu), b. 20 Apr 1937 (Los Angeles, USA)
Nichelle Nichols (Lt. Uhura), b. 28 Dec 1932 (Robbins, Illinois, USA)
Walter Koenig (Ensign Pavel Chekov), b. 14 Sep 1936 (Chicago, USA)
Majel Barrett (Nurse Christine Chapel), b. 23 Feb 1932 (Columbus, USA)

so Sulu and Chekov not quite 70 yet
Oh, Mickey! What's EGREGIOUS?!

I couldn't quite work out if that was a rant, an insult or a compliment on the grounds that it wasn't really English............
It is surely better to be pissed off than pissed on

so Sulu and Chekov not quite 70 yet

They used a William Shatner Mask in the film Halloween because of the low budget.

More to the point, don't think aluren or Lauren ever appeared in Star Trek, so what's she doing in this thread?!

Born 16 Sep 1924, by the way

Another Trek related individual worth considering is Ed Cassidy (b 4th May 1923) massive baldie about six and a half feet tall who made a notable guest appearance in the show and also has a toe hold on rock fame as the drummer with vastly under-rated Californian psychsters Spirit.

Still alive, which is more than can be said for Spirit's singer/guitarist Randy California.

Cassidy's health seems sound.........for an 83 year old with a few late nights and parties to his credit.

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

Good call, didn't know he was still with us (in spirit.Boom Boom.)

Check out 'Taurus' from 1968 album 'Spirit.' Jimmy Page had certainly heard this when he 'wrote' "Stairway to Heaven"
Pardon me but I got to run
The fact's uncommonly clear
I got to find who's now the number one
And why my angel eyes ain't here

From yesterdays Metro; (Yes I do seem to find copies on the train)

WHERE ARE THE OTHERS?

Leonard Nimoy (Mr Spock) is now 74. He has recently starred in Brave New World on NBC and in The Simpsons

William Shatner (Captain Kirk) has starred in Futurama and 3rd Rock From The Sun. At 74, he is advertising cereal in Britain.

George Takei (Sulu), 68, hosted a US public affairs show in the 1970s. He campaigned to get Sulu made a captain in the sixth Star Trek film in 1991.

Nichelle Nichols (Lieut Uhura) is 72. Her last big role was in 2002's Snow Dogs with Cuba Gooding Jnr.

So there’re all relatively young and in good health, unless any develop major illnesses, it'll be several years before any will be viable candidates for Deathlist.
"Love, friendship, loyalty, kindness - these are all emotions which we applaud, emotions which have been immortialized in the bad couplets of Hallmark Cards and in the verses (I don't dare call it poetry) of Leonard Nimoy." - Stephen King

Anubis: Good call on 'Taurus' shamelessly pillaged for 'Stairway to Heaven.' Ed Cassidy was interviewed - albeit briefly - for Mojo last year when a raft of reissued Spirit was unleashed. Can't see the man as a candidate for action hereabouts for a year or two yet, he's still drumming.

On the subject of contributions to the world of music by members of the StarTrek cast, it would be a crime not to mention William Shatner's classic rendition of "I am a Canadian".

Not to mention Leonard Nimoy singing "The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins"

And definitely not to mention Nimoy's "poetry"

It's not quite Vogon poetry, but shockingly close. :P

Having bought and savoured Nimoy's excreble tome "Will I Think of You' I'll vouch for the Vogonity of its contents. In fact I once heard a Douglas Adams fan suggesting the idea for Vogon poetry was inspired by the fact that 'Spock' wrote such crap. Another celeb pushing him all the way in the pretentious drivel stakes is Art Garfunkel, an individual so self-obsessed his official site lists every book he's read since the late sixties and the number of pages contained therein.

The link below gets you within range of Art's writing, mainly poems and 'prose poems.' 'Still Water' offers the worst of the drivel...you have been warned!

Art's 'Art'
