Back on Sept. 14th I suggested that Paul McGillion should be Scotty in the new Star Trek movie. It's not official but he auditioned for the part! There's no one else for this part. They should shut down the audition and just give the part to him.
Speaking of Paul, in this same article giving us the happy news about the audition, the SciFi Wire also reveals that Dr. Beckett will be in A FEW episodes in the fourth season. I'm going to have to give a WTF?!?!?!? I've already mourned his death. I shed actual tears. I've healed. I've moved on. I'm happy to see him back but I'm slightly annoyed too. If it's all flashback, I'm going to be really cranky.
