Beam me up Scotty

By helenlinda
"Beam me up, Scotty" is a catchphrase that made its way into popular culture from the science fiction television series Star Trek. It comes from the command Captain Kirk gives his chief engineer, Montgomery "Scotty" Scott, when he needs to be transported back to the Starship Enterprise.

Though it has become irrevocably associated with the series and movies, the exact phrase was never actually spoken in any Star Trek television episode or film

................and what is more this isn't a starship GrinGrinGrin
Oh well "April Fools Day", so it was worth a try WinkWinkWink

Brilliant work, Helen.


ps, being old enough to remember the first Star Trek series, the beam me up part was not originally intended until they discovered the cost of the scenes where the Enterprise or the shuttles landed on planets.

They then realised it was cheaper to beam people down than to create landings.

Sad info, I know!Blush
