Re: No respect for the character of Scotty in "Relics"?

Gods save us from a Trek story where modern Trek characters fawn over TOS characters. That's not drama, it's fanboy wish fulfillment verging on masturbation.

"Relics" was wonderful because for the very first (and last) time in the history of "Star Trek" James Doohan was the central actor and star of a Trek production (that episode about "Redjack?" Don't make me laugh). The episode honored Doohan and gave him an opportunity to show what he was capable of in a "Star Trek" story, so who cares whether "Scotty" was properly worshipped or not?
