They've beamed up Mr. Scott

All the icons of my childhood are leaving.

James Doohan, who is best known for his role as Mr. Scott in Star Trek (the series and the movies) has died at 85. He was fighting Alzheimer's and pneumonia, and died at home in the company of family.

Godspeed, Mr. Scott. You will live on in the memories of the millions of us who grew up watching you on Friday nights.
