Maybe someday we can figure out why Scotty took his nephew to the bridge. Perhaps it was the verbal equivalent of hitting the wrong button on an elevator.

This was addressed in Doohan's autobiography: "That was stupid. But that was Bill again. He railed over having to come down to engineering. He said this to Nick Meyer in front of me: 'Doohan's going to come to ME!' Now you can see why I just plain don't like the man. See, he didn't like Scotty and if you don't like Scotty, you don't like me. I don't know if I ever said this, but Scotty is 99% James Doohan and 1% accent. "
