Scotty has been beamed up

James Doohan, who played Scotty in Star Trek has died at the age of 85.

Although I've never been a Star Trek fan, finding the franchise to be ghastly overstretched and the various series to be ruined through excess money being spent on effects at the expense of decent scripts (and also burdened with far too much technobabble), Doohan has always stood out as one of the strongest performers, making the part of Scotty really come to life. Though the line "Beam me up Scotty" was never said, he will long be remembered for the series and no doubt much missed.
