The late Tom Snyder, who died this week, conducted a series of television interviews with several original Star Trek cast members: the late DeForrest Kelley (McCoy), the late James Doohan (Scotty), and the still kickin' Walter Koenig (Chekov).

Harlan Ellison also makes an appearance and gets into it a little bit with Scotty in part 5, calling [Trek] 'a cop show in space.' I'm wondering who would win in a fist fight between the two." Given Ellison's notorious belligerence and Napoleon complex, my money's on the writer.
