Scotty, beam me up: Canada Post issues latest Star Trek stamp

Adding to its ongoing series celebrating the 50th anniversary of Star Trek, Canada Post has issued a new stamp commemorating Montgomery “Scotty” Scott, chief engineer of the U.S.S. Enterprise.

Played by Vancouver-born actor James Doohan in the show’s original series, Scotty quickly became a well-beloved character, creating many mannerisms and expressions that have since been entrenched in pop culture around the world.

The stamp – aptly named “The Scotty” – was unveiled on Toronto’s CP24 Breakfast TV this morning. Doohan’s son, Chris, was on location for the unveiling.
