Re: What Was Scotty Doing There?

So perhaps Scotty had been on the station/Earth for some reason.
I suppose he could have been using the space as an office to coordinate everything having to do with the refit instead of cluttering up the engine room on the ship itself, but that still doesn't fully explain why he'd be there when the ship was near completion, and he needed to run final system diagnostics and fix the transporters before launch. I agree that someone was probably sent to meet Kirk and bring him over, but you're right that someone besides Scotty would have made more sense. Why not Chekov? As security chief, he would have made the most sense as an escort for Kirk.
