MSN is reporting
that James Doohan who played chief engineer Montgomery "Scotty" Scott on the original Star Trek
has passed away. Doohan was 85.
I'm saddened to hear this news and my thoughts and prayers go out to Doohan's family on this less.
As a Star Trek
fan, this is the second of the original crew that has gone on to the great Enterprise
in the sky.
Also, I must point out that at no point in the original series or films did anyone utter the line, "Beam me up, Scotty."
