“Beam Me Up Scotty…One Last Time” is the quite-serious title to a three-day event at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel billed as a farewell to the actor who, as fiery Montgomery Scott, ran the U.S.S. Enterprise’s engineering deck on Trek’s 1966-69 flagship series and six big-screen adventures. —Joal Ryan
I managed to work a reference to Scotty into my dissertation. He was my favorite Trek character, and I enjoyed his guest star appearance on Star Trek: The Next Generation.
