I am saddened by the news that James Doohan passed away.
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!
