    McCoy, Scotty, Checkov, and Kirk all died in various episodes. Spock didn’t die until the movies.

    Well… There was one episode where an important plot element was that Spock’s body, being “borrowed” for use by an advanced energy being, supposedly was killed by a super overdose of some drug. Everyone had to be fully convinced that Spock had received a fatal dose so that the energy being also would believe it and would flee the body.

    Many of the other deaths of major characters also turned out to be staged. Others were mistaken impressions, with passing out being mistaken for death, or with death assumed without direct witness, etc. Right now, I can think of only two (Scotty and McCoy) that were genuine deaths “fixed” shortly afterword by amazing bring-people-back-from-the-dead medical interventions via alien machines.

    I guess I must have been a serious old serious junkie while growing up that I would remember all of this. #sigh#

    There was a time, before ST:TNG came out, where I could see about 5 seconds of an original episode and know the plot, the season, and the title of the episode.

    Although I’m not a Star Trek or Star Wars fan I’ve always enjoyed sci-fi & horror movies all the way back to the fun and sometimes classic black & white movies.
    That being said, I never really liked zombie movies (could take them or leave them) but knowing how damn good AMC series programming is, I tried not to get roped into watching the Walking Dead (I already knew how very popular the print version was), but my Sunday evenings are pretty slow & relaxed (on purpose) so I watched it once and now I’m hooked. The show is an outstanding production and you could take the zombies out of it and it would still be a great show in how people cope and survive in the “end of the world” as we know it situations.
    I loved the old AMC when they only showed B&W movies but they are even better now. I love how (unlike other networks) they are ending a very popular series, Breaking Bad this last season because it has run its course instead of continuing it for more seasons, like other networks do to their shows, just because it gets great ratings.

    It’s probably because your brain was so young then and could absorb things like a sponge. I can recall being impressed in the early 1940’s by the fact that Dick Tracy was at the bottom of a well-like thing and a huge rock was gradually inching down on him and would crush him. (I believe he escaped out the bottom somehow.) Another time he was being starved by some fiend like Pruneface and subsisted for awhile on a daily wedge of turnip and the water from a fork. All this got my childish mind all wide eyed.

    My first sci fi was Saturday serials at the movies in 1951. 30 minute 2 reelers with a real cliff hanger every week.

    Right you are about being staged. McCoy was killed in Shore Leave, and Nomad killed Scotty. But Checkov also died for real. In Spectre of the Gun, he was one of the OK Corral people, got shot in the saloon.
