LOS ANGELES - James Doohan, the burly chief engineer of the Starship Enterprise in the original “Star Trek” TV series and motion pictures who responded to the command “Beam me up, Scotty,” died early Wednesday. He was 85.

When the chips were down, or should I say the dilithium crystals were shot, Kirk always turned to Scotty. One of my favorite lines, "I doan think she can do it." Always referring to the Enterprise as a woman in his Scottish accent.
