A Prayer for Ingenuity- Lt. Commander Montgomery Scott

Good morning.

Let us bow our heads.

Dear Mr. Scott,

We thank you for all that you have done to keep the Enterprise's warp drive online. Without you we could not explore strange new worlds to seek out new life and new civilizations.

Scotty, we ask that you watch over us as we try to mend our own warp cores and covert the dilithium crystals of our era into anti-matter. Just as you spent a hundred years suspended in animation after a beam out to nowhere only to rematerialize and discover the Klingons had become Federation allies; so should we prepare ourselves for the future and what awaits us.

Only you could stare down a warbird in Romulan space when your glory was filling in for Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock when they were out on away missions. Only you could beam Starfleet officers of line out of trouble just in the nick of time.

Our beloved Mr. Scott, how great thou art. Truly yours is of the divine inspiration that we could never replicate.

In the name of engineering we pray to you.

Amen

Ah, my favorite line from Trek . . .er, my favorite passage of scripture:

"Scotty, I need warp speed in three minutes or we're all dead."

With Mr. Scott all things are possible.

Are we talking about Fat Scotty, or Skinny Scotty?

We're talking about the Holy Scotty.

Because as JDB points out:

"With Mr. Scott, all things are possible."

They didn't call him the Miracle Worker because he played on some fictional 60's TV show or something.
