Aberdeen is taking a preemptive step in declaring itself the future birthplace of the most famous Scot of the 23rd century, the Enterprise's Montgomery Scott. The city plans to build a "space park" as a memorial to Scotty.

The Sunday Times reported that the city has written to NASA and to the government of Kazakhstan, the home of the Russian space programme, to ask for used rocket pieces for the monument, which would make Aberdeen an official pilgrimage site for Star Trek fans.
