Scotty - Beamed up

Like many people my age I used to watch and enjoy the orignal Star Trek series. Even then we knew how creaky the stories and sets were, but looked forward to seeing Kirk falling in love and getting into a fight, McCoy saying something scathing, Spock fighting his emotional side and Scotty fibbing about how long it would take to fix the engines, saving everyone again and getting very little thanks for it.

James Doohan who played Scotty has just died. Click the link and read about his fascinating life. It's better than telly.
