I am deeply saddened by the loss of such a legend. Scotty was the reason I became an Engineer in the UFOP. The Star Trek universe owes much of it's success and fame to Mr. Doohan.
My thoughts go out to his family.
It is reported that Doohan's remains will be launched into space, the same way Gene Roddenberry's were in 1991. This is fitting I think, for he will truly be going where no man has gone before.
And, if I may; one last time for posterity: "Beam me up, Scotty"
