He did command the Challenger at the beginning of Indistinguishable From Magic. He could tell a pre-IFM story.
That could be an interesting setup for a short story. Scott ended up at the Table after Challenger went kaboom, orders something green, and starts talking.
You know... I've always assumed that Scotty got out somehow, but it never occurred to me that this would be the most satisfying way for him to have done it.

LaForge was also Captain of the Challenger, so it would be neato if somehow (despite his recent demotion) LaForge is getting a drink at the bar and bumps into Scotty waiting for someone he can exit with.
