I canna do it, Cap'n! I need more time!


LOS ANGELES - Plans to launch the remains of “Star Trek” actor James Doohan into space next month have been delayed pending more rocket engine tests, organizers said Wednesday.

Doohan, who played the “Star Trek” engineer Montgomery “Scotty” Scott on the TV series, died in July at age 85. In accord with his last wishes, his cremated remains were set to be launched into space by commercial flight operators Space Services.

Charles Chafer of Space Services said the flight, due to blast off from California, was likely to be delayed from Dec. 6 until at least February because engineers working on the Falcon One rocket wanted to do some more engine tests.
