Today James Doohan died. Best known for his role of Montgomery "Scotty" Scott on Star Trek.
So long Jimmy, thanks for the memories.
Wil Wheaton had this to say:
I'm too shocked for a thoughtful eulogy right now. Everyone who watched Star Trek liked Scotty, but everyone who met him loved Jimmy . . . I'm sure I'm not the only person today who feels like they lost a friend. My thoughts are with his family.
Update, according to this article James Doohan requested that his ashes be sent into space, as was done for Gene Roddenberry.
Scotty belonged in space.
