Farewell, Mr. Scott

James Doohan, the actor who played Mr. Montgomery Scott (Scotty) on the original Star Trek, died today at his home in Redmond, WA. He had Alzheimer's disease and was 85 years old.

In television, time seems to stand still. In the Star Trek series, it is sometimes difficult to keep track of time at all.

We will miss James Doohan, who set the standard for all Star Trek engineers to come (or to precede him, as is the case with at least one Star Trek!)

We wish him smooth sailing in the life to come!

I grew up watching Star Trek! There'll never be another Scotty like James Doohan. May he rest in peace.

Beam me up, Captain -- one last time.

Now that's a cool warp-speed effect, if I may say so myself!

Thanks! I think so too! I found it after I had initially posted, but I thought it was worth going back and adding it later.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
