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.

This latest stamp joins three others (shown below) unveiled by Canada Post earlier this month, bringing the ongoing Star Trek series to a total of four stamps.
The first two Star Trek stamps feature Captain James Kirk (played by Canadian actor William Shatner) and the U.S.S. Enterprise, respectively. A third stamp, depicting Spock (played by late actor Leonard Nimoy), was unveiled a few days later at a star-gazing event in Vulcan, Alta.
