BEAMED UP: Star Trek's Scotty Reaches Outerspace Aboard First Private Spacecraft To Visit Space Station

Seen here loving the hell out of his new home in space, the ashes of Star Trek's iconic engineer Scotty (James Doohan) were launched into space this morning aboard the SpaceX Dragon -- the first private company spaceship scheduled to dock with the Space Station and launched using the same rocket they wouldn't let me sit on top of like a rodeo bull despite the promise of free publicity and "a photo op so f***ing rad it'll even give robots boners."

Hit the jump for a video of the launch and Evil Ares' shoutout.

Thanks to Evil Ares, who's so evil he wants his ashes spread in the fires of Mount Doom, causing it to erupt and flood Middle Earth with lava, killing all hobbits.

    Whoever didn't set that video to Amazing Grace is an idiot.

    May he boldly go where no man has gone before.

    perhaps his remains will land on a planet similar to genesis :)

  • Give her all she´s got Scotty and dont worry about time, you´ve got an eternity to make it work.

    I kinda want to say "To infinity. And Beyond!" but, of course, that's the wrong franchise. So I'll go with "Second star to the right...and straight on 'til morning."

  • I met James Doohan at a Star Trek convention when I was little. What a class-act and a nice guy!
