I’m a self proclaimed uber geek. Carrying 3-4 battery operated devices at a time is not unusual. Getting goose bumps on the way to Fry’s, Best Buy, or the local computer show is a normality. But Star Trek is where I draw the line. I’ve never been a “Trekkie” if that’s even how it’s spelled. All I know of the 55 season long television series is as follows: Starship Enterprise, Captain Kirk, Spock –pointy ears, and “Beam me up Scotty”!
Scotty, James Doohan, passed away at the age of 85. Leaving behind a 53 year old wife and a 5-year-old daughter. His ashes are headed out to space along with the other Star Trek stars. I would have pictured their ashes been spread over a television studio, as I don’t imagine these actors ever went to the real outer space.
