- In Planet of Judgment, she was called Honey. It was not specified if that was her actual given name or a nickname. She is first called Jocelyn in Enterprise: The First Adventure.
- The reasons for their divorce, and when they actually got divorced, differs from continuity to continuity.
Jocelyn and Leonard were ill-suited from the beginning of their marriage. Joanna was born five months after they were married. About 2255, war had broken out on two Federation fronts -- against the Kzinti and the Klingon Empire -- and McCoy undertook officer training at Starfleet Academy to become an officer on the front lines, rather than be a field medic. Shortly before the two-year course was to end, a peace treaty was signed with the Kzin and a cease fire with the Klingons, obviating the need for McCoy to serve.
Despite this, McCoy felt honor bound to fulfill his obligations to Starfleet, to which Jocelyn objected. She left, taking Joanna (then about five years old) with her.
Simultaneous with McCoy's arrival at his first Starfleet assignment, he received word of both Jocelyn's remarriage as well as their divorce papers.
By the late 2260s, Jocelyn and her second husband had had two children.
Heather "Honey" McCoy left Leonard because his work took priority over his family. The final straw was when he had forgotten their 10th wedding anniversary. (Orion Press: "The Anniversary Gift") While their daughter Joanna understood her mother's complaints, Joanna resented her mother's divorcing of her father. ("The Beginning", "The Unforgiving Minute")
Planet of JudgmentEdit
Honey McCoy filed for divorce from Leonard after he'd already received his medical degree and was working as a doctor in Atlanta. Joanna was then a young child.
After Honey left with Joanna, McCoy saw an advertisement in a local newspaper for Starfleet training.
Jocelyn's maiden name was Darnell. She was born in 2227, the same year as Leonard McCoy.
The reason for her breakup with McCoy was that she had gone back to her first love, Clay Treadway, though they would not marry until 2283.
