Description[edit | edit source]
- In this issue we discover what led young Montgomery Scott to devote himself to engineering, as we witness his first steps on the journey that would take him across the galaxy!
Summary[edit | edit source]
On Delta Vega, Montgomery Scott tells Keenser about his family. In 1787, one of Scott's ancestors was an engineer on the HMS Enterprise. He rescued the ship, which was buffeted by a storm while on a mission to fight the French. In 2231, in Linlithgow, Scotland, just before moving to Aberdeen, the young Montgomery Scott heard the story from his mother. He tried unsuccessfully to repair some bagpipes. Later, a security officer caught Scott and his brother, Robbie, sneaking into a nearby shipyard, where Scott discovered a problem on a starship. Years later, when Scott applied to Starfleet, his application was denied. Scott got a job as an engineer on a freighter. He ended up fixing a starship's dilithium scrubbers, which is what finally got him into Starfleet. In 2257, while attending Starfleet Academy, Scott performed his experiment in transwarp beaming on Admiral Jonathan Archer's prized beagle, Porthos. The dog never came back, which is why Scott is on Delta Vega. Scott is considering resigning from Starfleet when Keenser begins playing the bagpipes, which he has repaired.
