Doctor Leonard[1] "Bones"[2] McCoy was the chief medical officer aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701.[3] McCoy admitted on Stardate 1329.1 that he "never trusted" transporters.[4] In 2256, McCoy ended a two-year relationship with a woman named Nancy. She had given him the nickname "Plum."[1] Exposure to the spores of the pod plants found on Omicron Ceti III on Stardate 3417.3 caused McCoy's tonsils, which had been removed when he was younger, to regenerate.[5] By Stardate 2947.3, McCoy had earned the Legion of Honor and the Award of Valor, and had been decorated by Starfleet Medical.[6]

McCoy greatly distrusted the transporter, stating that he signed aboard the Enterprise "to practice medicine, not to have [his] atoms scattered back and forth across space," but he nevertheless used the device when necessary.[7] McCoy was once married, and had a daughter who attented school on Cerberus in 2260; her life was saved when Carter Winston used his personal fortune to bring food and supplies to the planet to help the population through a devastating crop failure.[8]

McCoy briefly resigned from Starfleet on Stardate 5476.3 when he was diagnosed with xenopolycythemia and believed he had less than a year to live. He married Natira, high priestess of Yonada, but their marriage is dissolved and he returns to Starfleet after Spock discovers a cure for the disease among the Yonadans' computer records.[9]

Prior to his assignment to the Enterprise, McCoy was stationed on Capella IV for several months, where he learned the intricate customs of the Ten Tribes of Capella.[10]
