TRIVIAL PURSUITS: From where did the phrase ‘Beam me up, Scotty’ originate?

‘Beam me up, Scotty!’ was never said in an episode of the TV series Star Trek or in Star Trek movies.

Other phrases were used, such as ‘Beam me up, Mr. Scott,’ ‘Scotty, beam us up,’ ‘Scotty beams us up,’ or ‘Beam them out of there, Scotty.’

The phrase ‘Beam me up, Scotty’ was eventually said by William Shatner, who played Captain Kirk in the TV series, in the audio adaptation of his novel, “Star Trek: The Ashes of Eden.”

Later, the actor who played Scotty, James Doohan, chose the phrase as the title of his autobiography.
