Last week, I played the episode with Scotty in it. (Night of the Comet?) Made me reminisce about the last time that I saw James Doohan. He seemed like a fun gentleman and said something along the line that Scotty was just James Doohan with a Scottish accent.
So why am I posting about an actor in the STO forum? - Scotty was a hugh inspiration for my playing Star Trek Online. My first character is a FED Engineer.
Mr. Doohan crossed the great barrier eight years ago and I wanted to tip my hat to him.
