DeForest Kelley

DeForest appeared on Gene Roddenberry's mid-1970s LP Inside Star Trek on which he is interviewed by Gene.
 
DeForest received a Star on the Walk of Fame, it's located at 7021 Hollywood Blvd.
 
In 1990, DeForest was nominated for the Razzie Award for Worst Supporting Actor for: Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (1989).
 
In 1999, Deforest received an In Memoriam Award.
 
DeForest told close friends that he always felt more comfortable in westerns then he did in science fiction.
 
Of the four main Star Trek (1966) cast members (the others being William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy and James Doohan), he is the only one who never appeared in The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (1964).
 
The Enterprise (2001) character, Admiral Maxwell Forrest played by Vaughn Armstrong, is named after DeForest.
 
DeForest was the only original Star Trek (1966) cast member never to write an autobiography.

Shortly before DeForest's death, he won the "Golden Cowboy Boot" award. In honor of his earlier work in westerns.
 
DeForest made both his first (The Corbomite Manoeuvre) and last (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country) Star Trek appearances with Nichelle Nichols.
 
DeForest was cremated and his ashes scattered over the Pacific Ocean.
 
Before landing the role of Dr. McCoy, DeForest was offered the choice to play Mr. Spock. (Can you even imagine that one?)
