DeForest Kelly played Leonard McCoy, a compassionate and dedicated physician with a failed marriage who joined Starfleet because he was divorced, broke and wanted to get as far away from Earth as possible. He hated advanced technology but mastered it for his practice. The original Star Trek series ran from 1966-1969 and spun off an endless number of movies, comics, books, video games, and related series. DeForest Kelly died in 1999. Karl Urban assumed the role of Leonard McCoy in movies beginning in 2009.
