LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Evidently "Star Trek" actor James "Scotty" Doohan took the catchphrase "beam me up" very seriously -- his cremated remains will be launched into space in accord with his last wishes. Doohan's cremated remains will be packed into a special tube that is ejected from the rocket and expected to orbit Earth for about 50 to 200 years before plunging into the planet's atmosphere and burning up.

Fans can post tributes to Doohan at the Space Services Web site ( Those messages will be digitized, packed with "Scotty" and blasted into space.

I was a huge fan of star trek. It is the program that got me interested in Space and the Final Frontier. Its sad day to see these great actors pass on. Anyone who is interested can post a message to James which will be digitized and sent up with him.

Beam me up Scotty!
