Anything you dream is fiction,
and anything you accomplish is science,
the whole history of mankind is nothing but science fiction.

Space date set for Scotty’s ashes

The ashes of Scotty (James Doohan), my favorite Star Trek character, are going to be launched into space. The symbolic act would have pleased him, I think. Although we only know the part that the actor played and not the man, from all accounts, James Doohan was every bit as nice a guy as the character Scotty.

My favorite Scotty episode? I like the second generation episode, Relics, where Geordi and Scotty have to escape from a Dyson Sphere. The contrast of styles is wonderful.

    I got to meet him at a convention one year, and he was really nice…definitely nicer than the two biggest stars.

    But who knows, those are their con personas…You don’t always get to meet the “real” person at those things…
