To Boldly Go Where No Man Has Gone Before

Or not go, depending on whether you can get the engines running. Looks like they could use another engineer like Scotty:

In life, James Doohan was the “Star Trek” engineer who worked miracles on the Enterprise, but a rocket meant to blast his remains into space has engine trouble.

A Falcon One rocket was to lift the ashes of Doohan, who played engineer Montgomery “Scotty” Scott aboard the fictional Starship Enterprise, into space next month but the launch has been delayed at least until February, organizers said Tuesday.

Scotty turned out to be the most well- liked of the old Star Trek cast, happy to be part of a legend and always thankful to his fans. One of the best odes to Scotty that I’ve heard comes from the musical talent of James Lileks’ Bleatophany; download this mp3 and enjoy.
