Simon Pegg has gone to great lengths to convince Star Trek fans that he is right man to step into the shoes of James Doohan. The British actor has even gone as far as to make his performance as "Scotty" a cinematic tribute to the late actor to whom he holds the highest respect. Pegg says, "I didn't want to do an impression of James Doohan, because the guy's a legend."

In an interesting bit of fate, Doohan's son Christopher plays an officer on the Starship Enterprise in the new film, and Pegg admits he spent hours grilling him for information about late father. Pegg explains how working with the son of the man who made the role he is playing an international icon helped him emensly, "I wanted to make it a tribute to him (Doohan). His son Chris was on the Enterprise with me. He was my assistant, so I was able to talk to him about his experiences with his dad."
