Tribute to James Doohan


When beloved actor James Doohan passed away in 2005, it was announced that he wished to follow his friend Gene Roddenberry on a final mission to space, aboard a Celestis Memorial Spaceflight.

Celestis, Inc., the pioneer and global leader in Memorial Spaceflight, is deeply honored to have James Doohan aboard our memorial spaceflights: the Legacy Flight (launched April 28, 2007), the Explorers Flight (launched August 2, 2008, although the spacecraft did not achieve Earth orbit), The New Frontier Flight (launched May 22, 2012) and the upcoming Sunjammer mission into deep space.

We thank Mr. Doohan's many friends and fans around the world who have composed tributes to Mr. Doohan, to honor him on his journey into space. Your names and messages will fly with Mr. Doohan.

Below is an invitation from Ms. Wende Doohan to all of James Doohan's friends and fans:


Fans and Friends:

Jimmy absolutely adored playing the role of Scotty on Star Trek. He promoted space exploration and travel where ever he went. He would have given almost anything to be able to actually go into space. When asked if he would ever ride the Space Shuttle, with a twinkle in his eye he replied, “In a heartbeat!”

He finally gets his wish, through the efforts of Space Services, Inc.

Jimmy so thoroughly enjoyed his fans, from all walks of life, from around the world. He spent a lot of time listening to them, and how he, or the character of Scotty might have influenced their lives. He regretted not being able to spend enough time with them.

I can’t think of a more fitting send off than having some of his fans attend this, his final journey. If you wish to send a few words of tribute, they will be digitized and sent with Jimmy, as part of the payload on this launch.

For those who wish to attend the launch, you are more than welcome. And for those who can’t, just look to the heavens on launch date and know that you are sharing a WorldWide Memorial for James “Scotty” Doohan.

Most Sincerely,

Wende C. Doohan
