I'm bowing my head now.
Damn, 10+ years of Alzheimers and now Pheumonia.
RIP, man.
I grew up on re-runs of Star Trek on Channel 44 outta Pittston/Avoca, Pennsylvania and his portrayal of Scotty is.....fantastic.
I turn 32 yrs old at 7:50PM today(born on a FRIDAY before prime-time, haha) and this just makes me feel a little bit older, now.
Poor Scotty....I hope his family makes it through OK. What a sad day...

Definitely a sad day. My heart goes out to his family. It was a great actor and it was nice to see him replay his role of Scotty on Star Trek the next generation. He was one of my favorite character from the original star trek next to spoke. Sad day.

Accch, no doubt he is in a better place, but sad news nonetheless
I'm going to punch out a Klingon in his honour, RIP Mr.Scott

Is he the first to die from TOS or is DeForest Kelly still around?

De Kelley died about 6 years ago, so Doohan is the 2nd main Trek TOS castmember to pass on.

I was so sad to see James Doohan's death notice on CNN.com this morning. The guy was a real talent, he was a master of accents and vocal sounds, he came up with the sound of the Klingon language for Star Trek. He was also a WW2 vet, and father to 7 children.

I'm deeply saddened by the loss of Jimmy Doohan. He truely was a gifted actor, and a legend in classic television.

I'm still an Original Star Trek fan to this day and I'll miss him dearly. I always wanted to meet Jimmy in person, but never having the opportunity. A friend of mine was able to go, and got his autograph for me.

I was going to have a whisky or scotch in his honor... I forgot all about it. Hopefully Scotty liked Red microbrewed beer.

Why don't you microbrew me up a batch of ****in' Budweiser ? ;) ;) ;)

On a somber note, too bad about James Doohan passing but 85 is one heck of a great run. Godspeed, Scotty. :)

It's awesome that he will get to join Gene Roddenberry up in amonst the stars out there. As they are rocketing his ashes into space. Very sad day indeed.
I will need to watch RELICS from ST:TNG again. That is one of THEE best NGen eps of all time.

This was a bit depressing to hear of, and im not even a Star Trek fan. Scotty was always one of my favorite Trek characters so this news was like a kick to the shin. But hes in a better place now, and i love how they are going to send him off one last time. RIP Scotty, you lived long and prospered.

Ever see the part in Trekkies where James Doohan talks about a fan he turned away from suicide ? I was thinking of that after I heard he died. He always seemed like a class act based on that story, alone.

I absolutely remember that and thought the same thing. Especially cool how he kept in touch with the person.
