James Doohan, the chief engineer on the old Star Trek show as well as the first five movies, died last year and his ashes were supposed to be shot into space shortly thereafter. Well, that's been pushed back a bit but it's now scheduled for October. Overhead in the meeting room where this decision was made, "Captain, we can't wait any longer!"
Now that you're thinking about Star Trek, check out this Star Trek parody Star Wreck, an amateur film. This story from the Register says the movie came out last October, but I never heard about it. Now myself and others can catch up by checking it out. If it's anywhere near as good as that amateur Star Wars movie Revelations, that would be impressive indeed.
