Re: Pegg on Portraying Scotty

His method was crude, and thankfully made obsolete very quickly. But he invented the first working television system and thus deserves to be called it's inventor. Farnsworth arguably made a greater contribution to TV as we know it today, but the concept was already there in electromechanical form thanks to Logie Baird.
