|Starfleet Rank Admiral|
|Portrayed DeForest Kelley, Karl Urban|
Eonard H. McCoy (nicknamed "Bones"), played by DeForest Kelley, is the Doctor character in the original Star Trek series, and the first six Star Trek films. The character does not appear in the two pilots for the series, "The Cage" and "Where No Man Has Gone Before"; the ship's doctors in those episodes are Philip Boyce (John Hoyt) and Mark Piper (Paul Fix), respectively.
Karl Urban will play a young Leonard McCoy in the upcoming Star Trek film to be directed by J.J. Abrams.
onard McCoy was born in 2227 according to Star Trek: The Next Generation episode: "Encounter at Farpoint". He attended the University of Mississippi, where he once met Emony Dax, a female Trill athlete with whom it is implied he had a "brief involvement" (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode: "Trials and Tribble-ations").
By 2265, McCoy had been promoted to lieutenant commander and was assigned as a medical observer to the planet Capella. The assignment was unfruitful, as the Capellans found little need for medical arts and existed under a tribal society where only the strong survived ("Friday's Child").
He is suspicious of advanced technology, especially the transporter, which he regards with distrust and outright dismay (often expressing a suspicion that the device will irretrievably scatter his atoms), and occasionally is bigoted with regard to Spock's half-Vulcan ancestry. A divorcé, he often showed a flirtatious side to female members of the Enterprise crew . He is the only American Southerner depicted among the racially and ethnically diverse crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise.
