James Doohan, better known as Scotty on Star Trek, has died, Sky News is reporting.
He’s not dead. There was a transporter malfunction that caused only his soul to be beamed up. As we speak Spock and Kirk are working on a way now to beam his soul back down to him.
Nothing pithy or informative to add. Just a fond farewell.
Beam him up, Captain.
His performances brought a lot of happiness.
Not the worst legacy.
Ah, that’s a shame.
“She can’t take much more of this, Captain!”
Aww, man! This sucks.
Reportedly, his last words were “Captain, I’ve found somethi-…”
I kid, I kid.
A wonderful performer, and I hope he didn’t suffer terribly in the last few years with Alzheimer’s.
He lost a finger on D-Day. He is alright in my book.
The dilithium crystals!
“A keyboard? How quaint.”
By-bye, Scotty. We love you.
At least he’ll be enjoying a glass of green stuff with Dr. McCoy and Harry Mudd.
RIP Mr Doohan, Canadian WW2 veteran, D-Day survivor, and wounded in action.
I always liked Scotty. Althuogh this, fromthe CNN site, bugged me:
I’m pretty sure that phrase was never actually said. The closest was,
“Beam us up, Mr. Scott.”
But I could be wrong. Anyone know for sure? Snopes didn’t have it listed.
I just wish that he would have agreed to be on Futurama.
Who will play the pipes at his funeral?
…and a glass of fine Scotch in his honor tonight…
Now I really feel old. I remember when he was thin and had dark hair.
Farewell, Scotty. Engineering wilna be the same without you.
