Here’s a more extensive report.

From all I have heard, this is typical of the man:

In a 1998 interview, Doohan was asked if he ever got tired of hearing the line “Beam me up, Scotty.”

“I’m not tired of it at all,” he replied. “Good gracious, it’s been said to me for just about 31 years. It’s been said to me at 70 miles an hour across four lanes on the freeway. I hear it from just about everybody. It’s been fun.”

The BBC site is now carrying the news of James Doohan’s death.

James Doohan, famous for playing Scotty in Star Trek, has died. I can’t remember if he is one of those [livejournal.com profile] rhionnach has met. Of all the characters in Trek, I think it was Scotty who made it for me. Despite the dodgy accent and occasional slips into shortbread-tin “Scottishness”, Doohan really did portray a believable engineering type, and I have heard he was a very nice guy (except, perhaps, with regard to Shatner).
