Well, Scotty is dead. We'll all have to face the fact that the characters on Star Trek are essentially geriatric these days, but for me I've successfuly maintained a facade of denial for some time. If Scotty is gone... then I may be next. Dead from pneumonia and Alzheimers at the ripe age of 85. Jeez... 85.

He once told an interviewer that he didn't watch Star Trek because the reruns ran opposite his favorites -- Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune. Yeah... the old Scotsman was still lusting after the lovely Vanna. My kinda guy.
