Seen here loving the hell out of his new home in space, the ashes of Star Trek's iconic engineer Scotty (James Doohan) were launched into space this morning aboard the SpaceX Dragon -- the first private company spaceship scheduled to dock with the Space Station and launched using the same rocket they wouldn't let me sit on top of like a rodeo bull despite the promise of free publicity and "a photo op so f***ing rad it'll even give robots boners."

Hit the jump for a video of the launch and Evil Ares' shoutout.

Thanks to Evil Ares, who's so evil he wants his ashes spread in the fires of Mount Doom, causing it to erupt and flood Middle Earth with lava, killing all hobbits.
