Doctor Leonard McCoy first appeared in the Original Series and later in The Animated Series followed by the subsequent six movies. The Character has been portrayed by two actors to date, the original was the late DeForest Kelly and most recently in the Kelvin Timeline Karl Urban.
Despite health issues, in the last few years of his life, DeForest Kelly reprised his role as Admiral McCoy during the pilot episode of the Next Generation where he had inspected the new USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D prior to its mission in Encounter at Farpoint.
DeForest Kelly would also later appear through the use of archive footage alongside much of the original cast during the Deep Space Nine episode Trials and Tribble-ations and in a picture in Beyond, unfortunately, his aforementioned health issues kept him from appearing in Generations with many of his former co-stars.
When the Kelvin Timeline was launched in 2009 the role was taken over by Karl Urban who would appear in all three movies.
