Some variation on the most obvious tag-line ever

War-hero and Canadian icon, James "Scotty" Doohan is to be beamed up this December.

James Doohan, who played Scotty in the Star Trek television series, will get his final resting place in space in December. Doohan's ashes are due to be blasted into space on a commercial rocket from California's Vandenberg Air Base, along with the remains of some 170 other people, a private company that organizes 'space burials' said Friday.

Doohan, a Canadian who died in July at age 85, is forever linked to four iconic words - 'Beam me up, Scotty,' the request by other Enterprise crew members when they returned from space adventures.
