While I've never been a full blown trekkie I remember watching old re-runs of Star Trek when I was younger. The characters I remember well were Captian Kirk, Spock, and Scotty. As of today Scotty is no longer with usJames Doohan, who played engineer Montgomery Scott, the scrappy Scotsman who repeatedly gave the Starship Enterprise "all she's got" in the original "Star Trek" TV series and motion pictures, died Wednesday. He was 85.
