What you said is true after all, Scotty - you canna change the laws of physics. Or of biology. We are all mortal, in the end.
Thank you for being part of my life. May Heaven contain at least one glorious starship for you to work your peculiar mechanical magic on. So long, Scotty, and thanks for all the fish...
PS Just read this:
"THE ashes of Star Trek actor James Doohan, who died today, will be sent into space following his cremation..."
How perfect. He was an earthbound mortal, but he will always be remembered for his fictional wanderings across the vast fastnesses of space. How fitting that he should go where so few have gone before.
