I was a huge fan of his character on Star Trek, he was by far my favorite character of any series.  I think Wil Wheaton said it best when he said: "Everyone who watched Star Trek liked Scotty, but everyone who met him loved Jimmy . . . I’m sure I’m not the only person today who feels like they lost a friend."
