Default Relics

I just watched Relics on TV for the first time since the late great James Doohan left us for the great beyond.

*sigh* ....

That episode now has more emotional meaning to it that it ever had.

I almost shed a tear at the scene in the holodeck where Scotty looks around the old 1701 bridge, raises a glass and says "Here's to ya lads".

Very poignant. Especially now when you have to realise that trek as we once knew it is gone.

Absolutely a great and classic ep! Haven't seen it in a few years. Been busy building my own Dyson Sphere.

And going to the movies.

The most poignant moment for me, when rewatching recently, was Geordi saying "take care of yourself out there," and Scotty saying, simply "Aye."
I got all tear-ed up.
