Just as Sherlock Holmes never said, “It’s elementary, my dear Watson,” nobody in the original show ever said “Beam me up, Scotty,” but that’s OK.
(Favorite line: “It’s… green.”)
Scotty was definitely my favorite character when I was a kid. I actually managed to work a reference to Scotty into my dissertation, in reference to a machine-loving engineer character in an early Eugene O’Neill play.
Thanks for telling me about the sad news, Rosemary.
