James Doohan (Star Trek’s Scotty) has passed away

Rest in peace, Scotty. We have grown up with you at the control panel as Ster Trek’s most memorable engineer. You may have been typecast after the three-year long run with the original series, but boy, what a character you created. When the ST universe came back in late 70s in a series of movies, and throughout the 80s and 90s (including the guest-star appearance in “Relics”, an episode of The Next Generation) you have been the highlight of any plot, and stole every scene with your burly tone and Scottish accent. Thanks for every line of dialogue, and may your journeys continue beyond this world.
