Without doubt, "Scotty" may have inspired many to consider the possibility of space travel, but I wonder if blasting dead bodies into Earth orbit is quite what he had in mind.........

Kinda gives new meaning to the words "Beam me up, Scotty"

It would be a great way to remember such a Legend.

A fine actor. It wasn't until after his death that I learned that he was faking that accent. Strange.

BTW, UT, is your avatar trying to catch snowflakes on his tongue? :}

Bit like "Play it again, Sam", which were never said in Casablanca either. The actual words were "Play it, Play it, Sam."

Bit 'o trivia for y'all.
