I too wanna hear all about your meeting James Doohan. I seen an old interview with him and he seems like a really interesting guy to talk to, and Scotty is one of my all time favorite characters.
Jimmy Doohan was such a great guy. I met him in 1976 for the first time. I joined his fan club and met my first wife through the penpal section. My son is named "Scotty" in his honor.
I saw him at many shows over the intervening years and got to go on a Star Trek cruise with him back in the 90's.
His son Chris is really nice to chat with. He is on Facebook and responds to all posts.
