Fourth TOS Movie? The Hell It Is!
Bones and Scotty worm their way into a Plexiglas company and speak to the man in charge. Bones pretends to be agog that no one knew Professor Scott was coming all the way from Edinburgh to meet with the owner of the company. "I've tried to clear things up, Professor Scott," Bones explains, gesturing wildly at a slow and confused Scotty, "I've explained that you'd come all the way from Edinburgh on appointment to study methods of manufacturing from Plexicorp, but they don't seem to know anything about it." Scotty finally catches on and starts pacing "angrily." "Don't know anything about it!? I find it hard to believe that I've come millions of miles --" "Thousands," Bones says out of the corner of his mouth. Is Scotty really that dumb? They always make him out to be such a buffoon in all the movies. I mean, unless I'm gravely mistaken, Scotland is the same distance from California in the future as it is in 1986. Sure, there might be some continental drift, but not that would turn thousands into millions. "Thousands of miles on an invited tour..." Scotty continues to blather before Mr. Plexicorp assures him that he will take him around the plant personally. Scotty cheers right up. "May my assistant join us?" he asks, gesturing grandly at Bones. "Don't bury yourself in the part," Bones crabs.
