Montgomery "Scotty" Scott was Chief Engineer for the Classic Star Trek Enterprise. "Scotty" evoked the character-type of the Scottish engineer, once a mainstay of naval and SF fiction : resourceful, devoted, hard-drinking, a lady's man. He had the individualism and passion of Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy and the pragmatism and stubbornness of Spock, so in the series he was most like Spock when counterbalancing Dr. McCoy and most like Dr. McCoy when counterbalancing Spock.
