James Lileks links to an account by James Doohan’s son of the delays that have prevented sending Scotty’s ashes into orbit. He writes:

My dad believed in human ingenuity, and he believed in mankind’s destiny beyond the exosphere. That it would take several attempts in these early stages to successfully achieve orbit would not have phased him.

Ordinarily I might be inclined to nitpick the error in the last sentence — the word is fazed — but in this context, the nonstandard spelling seems entirely appropriate.
