I cannae change the laws of physics, cap'n!

Scotty! Nooooooo!!!

James Doohan was always one of the best things on the old show. A whole universe full of billions of species and Mr. Scott would have stopped the Enterprise on a dime to pick up a bottle of, what else... Scotch.

Here's to ye, lad.

Oh, and his best line: "I cannae change the laws of physics, cap'n! I need thirty minutes!" He said, while altering the laws of the physics to allow the Enterprise to travel backwards in time while whipping around a planet.

Geekily yours,

Mike, Mike, Mike. Have a little faith: Scottie isn't dead.

As we all know, Scottie cheats death more than used car salesmen cheat scout leaders. For example, in 2294 when the USS Jenolan crashed while investigating a Dyson sphere, Scottie rigged the transporter buffer to hold his pattern in suspension for 75 years, until he was rescued by the USS Enterprise, Jean Luc Picard commanding.

I mean, if he were actually dead, that would be sad. And I hate sad stuff.
