"Beam me up Scotty" has become one of those phrases commonly used in conversation for those of us who ever watched the original Star Trek series. It's one of those sayings that will probably become timeless, never outdated. After all, it's been around since the late 60s.


Today, Scotty passed away, joining Dr. McCoy. I guess that leaves four of the original leading cast members. As an aside, Captain Kirk hasn't been looking that good lately. Perhaps, he should start exercising more.


I wonder if there should be a state funeral, with all the deceased cast members buried in Arlington National Cemetery.


Anyway, goodbye Scotty. Guess you beamed up for the last time.

Good tribute to Scotty, Tristan.


I know that his real name wasn't Scotty, but thats who he'll always be to me.


Isn't it funny? Scotty grew to be as big as a whale, yet he lived to be 85. I wonder what his secret was. Maybe I should stop going to the gym. lol


Good luck on your last voyage, Scotty.

Higher life forms.


Hey Nick,

A very thoughtful tribute to one of my (if not ) favorite Trek characters. Jimmy Doohan's presence in the original and subsequent features was always true. His character never rang as artificial or hammy as some of the other actors.


"Cap'n, there be whales here" , indeed. A larger than life sci-fi character.

BoN - Good selection of quotes. Brings back so many good memories. However, as a half-Scot, I think you'll find than the name for children, and the engines were as his children, is "bairns" not "barins". Though it might sound quite like "barin" when spoken as splendidly as he did.

Scotty had made arrangements for his ashes to be sent into space. Gene Roddenberry's ashes were sent into space in 1997. So Scotty gets one more round of being "beamed up" in grand style.


Our thanks to Nick for providing all the great pics and quotes.
