Mr Scott, One to Beam Up

Well, I was reading through my RSS feeds and noticed that Wil Wheaton had an interesting title on on article. Only after reading it had I discovered that one of my favorite Star Trek characters, Scotty, had passed away this morning. Below is the information that Wil provided:

LOS ANGELES — James Doohan, the burly chief engineer of the Starship Enterprise in the original “Star Trek” TV series and motion pictures who responded to the command “Beam me up, Scotty,” died early Wednesday. He was 85.

Doohan died at 5:30 a.m. at his Redmond, Wash., home with his wife of 28 years, Wende, at his side, Los Angeles agent and longtime friend Steve Stevens said. The cause of death was pneumonia and Alzheimer’s disease, he said.

In the words of Mr. Spock, Live Long and Prosper Mr Doohan
