All very good points, however, one doesn't rise to the rank of Captain of Engineering by being drunk on duty. I think Scotty worked hard and played hard. When he was on duty, he was stone cold sober (you can't be a miracle worker when your dunk all the time), and when he was off duty, well... look out!

Maybe it was some kind of left of field tribute and/or compliment?


i suppose it's as good a reason as any to defend such a ridiculous set-up!

I remember the explanation for the new engineering being a mix of JJ liked the location and the movie was out of budget for new sets.

I think I heard somewhere that the location actually was a brewery.

Re:  The 09's Scotty working in a brewery.  According to the added features on the 09 DVD, Abrams wanted to utilize partical elements for sets as a means to make it more believable and that the choice of showing in a brewery was in line with this direction.

He may have been a drinker, but remember, 1966 was a different time, so they may have been forced to hint, ranther then show the booze being consumed

What's so 'believable' about a starship engine room looking like a brewery?


I think the TOS engine room is much more likely - big self-contained equipment humming away while a handful of people press a few buttons - come to think of it even in a brewery you don't have loads of people running around getting in each other's way - it's largely automated, like everything else these days

I concur 100%. The current trend in the U.S. Navy is for more automation with fewer crew. The old Oliver Hazard Perry Class firgates started that trend in the '70s and it has continued through today with the latest and greatest Litoral Combat Ship. I don't see this trend changing into the future, so the JJ engine room makes no sense.


I hated the 09 engine room for the exact reason that it looked like a brewery, not an engine room!

Believable in that the set was a real, practical set, instead of a CGI green screen.


May 4th, 2012 will be the thirtieth anniversary of the release of Duran Duran’s epic single “Hungry Like the Wolf.” Where were you when these young men from Birmingham ushered in the ecstatic era of New Wave and changed the face of music forever? How will you mark this seminal anniversary?

Cowgirlcadet, that has to do with body mass (the guy was bigger than Scotty), and liver function, which the aliens would have made perfect as they were as obsessed with efficiency as 7 of 9 in a later series.


Scotty is also mentioned as having been drunk offscreen.


Star Trek 2:


Kirk "Mr Scott, you are a veteran what are you doing here?"


Scott "well... it's out of grattitude to Dr. McCoy, I was ill and he helped me"


Kirk "ill of what?"


McCoy "Shore Leave"


And Others.

What episode was it when McCoy came up with a cure for something & Scotty asked if it was good with scotch, and then said he would let McCoy know?

Good shout Broadstorm and bvbpl on the Tholian Web


So far we have:


- 'By Any Other Name'


- 'Wolf in the Fold'


- 'Trouble with Tribbles'


- 'Spectre of the Gun'


- 'The Tholian Web'


- 'Relics' (TNG)


- What Reliant Redshirt describes as 'Star Trek 2' - presumably TWOK


AND Servalanfan mentioned episodes which featured formal receptions/dinners. I can think of the following, all of which i'm certain Scotty attended though haven't checked:


- 'Space Seed' (formal dinner held in Kahn's honour)


- 'Journey to Babel' (ambassadors' reception)


- 'Is there in Truth no Beauty' - (dinner for Miranda and Marvik)


 


So that's 10 incidents - the evidence is beginning to pile up


any advance on that?
