3. LONG LIVE Mr. SCOTT!
Edited on Wed Jul-20-05 06:45 PM by LuCifer
Rest in peace Mr Doohan! Aw MAN, this totally fucking BLOWS. But ya know, and if I've said this once, I've said it 9 billion times, PLEASE, celebrate LIFE and NOT DEATH! Look at the LEGACY this man has! I would seriously trade mine for his in a HEARTBEAT. Like the fellow dearly departed Gene Rodenberry & Deforest Kelly, he will be missed, AND NOT FORGOTTEN! My god man (Kirk voice!), these folks, ALL OF THEM, especially Roddenberry, were PROPHETS! They paved the way to SO many advancements. 40 years ago, look at JUST the 1st season of Star Trek, and look at the shit they thought of, and we now have today:

1. Communicator (now: cell phones!)

2. Transporters (ok, so it's only been done on the CELLULAR LEVEL, BUT HEY, IT HAS BEEN DONE!)

3. The 3 inch disk thingys: now, your 3 inch disks you put into your computer!

4. The Hypo: Instead of getting a vaccine shot or whatever, via a NEEDLE (ICK! FUCK THAT! Sorry to curse, but COME ON!) guess what has been developed in the UK?! You guessed it:
{Please note that this may not be the best invention since it only makes it easier for the scumbags drug companies to get their mercury-laced vaccines to you eaiser...ugh!) And if you don't believe me, go to this link:
http://www.popsci.com/popsci/medicine/article/0,20967,1...

5. The Internet. (Not so much in the 1st season, BUT, more so in ST: TNG. Remember Data searching for stuff?! On this huge data-base--pun intended!--right?! Well! Sound familiar!?)

And that's just what I can think of off the top of my head!

I now will have a scotch in honor of Mr. Scott! And to ALL of you fine folks who have worked with the Star Trek series movies/TV show, who have made today's reality THAT much BETTER with your POSITIVE vision of the future, CHEERS TO YA! AND PLEASE KEEP UP THE DAMN FINE WORK! You will all not be forgotten!

Lu

PS Edit time!

I GOT ONE MORE!

6. Race relations. Uh, any other show(s) in the 1960's have a BLACK WOMAN on board?! DIDN'T THINK SO! And what about that SULU! Damn yellow commie! And that least to the Ruskie, what about that COMMIE PINKO Checkov! Ok, and what about that Scott too while we are at it! HELLO! And they got that HICK Southerner Doc. McCoy! AND THIS FREAK ALIEN SPOCK! HOLY CRAP DUDE! DIVERSITY! HELP!!!!!!!
And meanwhile, around the same time, you've got white folks playing American Indians (I am one, so I CAN SAY IT! To HELL with this STUPID kookoo way of refering to us as NATIVE AMERICAN! PLEASE discard that term, ok!)

I'm glad he was spared suffering from Alzheimers long-term.

RIP Mr Doohan! :cry:

6. I hear ya
I cannot think of a worse fate. Damnation. But again, he WILL NOT ever be forgotten. What a legacy! Not just Star Trek, but you factor in his other films, and MY GOD MAN (there's that damn Kirk voice again!) and you have a MOUNTAIN of material!

THANK YOU TO ALL FUTURISTS, BE IT ON TV OR OTHERWISE, WHO HAVE HELPED THE REST OF US ADVANCE!

5. So long Mr. Scott...
May your warp engines run clean and no one *ever* call
the Enterprise garbage scow fodder.
