He was 85.
He has been an inspiration to so many, myself included.
His character in the Star Trek TV shows and films contributed in sparkin a hope that one day Science Fiction will become Science Fact. I would definitely love to live in the Star Trek World.
Although Canadian-born, I will always remember him as that incredibly intelligent, bubbly Scotsman with a great sense of humor.
A few grams of his ashes will be in orbit soon.
James Doohan, you've been beamed up!
