RIP, Scotty

Sorry to hear it. However, judging by his illnesses, it may have been something of a release.

They're going to send some of his ashes up in a rocket. He wanted to be in space, like Roddenberry.

Interesting tidbit...the line "Beam me up Scotty" was never actually used in the series. It was always "Mr.Scott, beam me up" or "Beam me up Mr.Scott"

I always loved Star Trek.

dirac is right, altzeimer's is horrible for the person who's suffering, as well as for thier loved ones. My Nana had a STRONG heart and held on for over 10 years. It wasn't pleasant for anyone. Very much the long goodbye.

Huge original Star Trek fan here, too...His character on the show was so unique and he played it so well. He will be missed by his family and his many fans...I saw a bumper sticker once that read, "Beam me up, Scotty. There's no sign of intelligent life down here." I searched high and low for that bumper sticker! I never found it...

What I remember about Scotty was that he had the most wonderful smile...he seemed to have the greatest affection for Captain Kirk! I never watched the new series the old one was great though...
