The man who played Scotty on "Star Trek" has died.

A publicist says James Doohan (DOO'-ihn) died at his home in Redmond, Washington, early this morning. He was 85.

Doohan played chief engineer Montgomery Scott, known as Scotty, on the Starship Enterprise. His character often played a central role in the T-V series and movies, troubleshooting problems on the Enterprise to save the day.

He's been immortalized in the well-known line "Beam me up, Scotty."

The cause of death was pneumonia and Alzheimer's disease.
