Vail Scotty

The man who played – was – Star Trek‘s inimitable engineer, Montgomery Scott, has passed away. A man whose Scottish accent never actually was Scottish, but who came to epitomise everything Scottish on screen, James Doohan was roguish to the core, riding the Star Trek wave like a Celtic hero, laughing over a cold one till his barrel-shaped body shook like a kilt in the wind, and fathering his last child at 80.

Let’s all raise a glass to Scotty today, in the hopes that when at last he was beamed up there, he’s giving them all he’s got, Captain!
