    "Scotty" James Doohan of "Star Trek" fame dies at 85...

    James "Scotty" Doohan died early this morning of pneumonia and Alzheimers... He played the Chief Engineer Montgomery Scott on the original Star Trek. Bit-o-trivia: His middle name in real life was also Montgomery...

    He was also a talented character actor before joining "Star Trek", and he was a master of dialects from his days in radio. He tried seven off them for the part. The producers of the show asked him which one he preferred, and he replied "I believed the Scot voice was the most commanding, so I told them, 'If this character is going to be an engineer, you'd better make him a Scotsman.'"

    R.I.P., Scotty. You've finally been beamed up.

    Note: he fathered his last child with his third wife in 2000, at the age of 80!!!

    Scotty fathered a child when he was 80...looks like he still could "beam it up" up until recently. RIP Scotty.
