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!
