Would everyone please stop saying “Beam me up, Scotty”, especially now as James Doohan has sadly passed away.

Why? Because this was never, ever said in the TV series EVER. The closest you can get is Captain Kirk saying “Beam me up, Mr Scott” or in Star Trek IV saying “Scotty, Beam me up”.


There are some other interesting non-quotes there as well.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
