D C Fontana, scriptwriter on the original series of Star Trek, put Scotty’s birthplace into her Star Trek novel Vulcan’s Glory and that was good enough for The Linlithgow Story museum who, with the help of the Doohan family, have opened a special memorial exhibition to Lt Commander Montgomery Scott's alter-ego, actor James Doohan.
The museum in Annet House on the town’s High Street is a typical small town historical museum, with displays, models and photos of the history of the surrounding area, its people and how they worked and lived. However one room is now given over to their future citizen and the Canadian actor who portrayed him.
In the meantime please remember that if you wish to visit the museum, according to the exhibition leaflet, "Linlithgow is a 'Beam-free' zone" and that "Transporters may not be used". Buses, trains and private cars are acceptable alternatives.
