Scotty's true love.


When the USS Enterprise visits Deep Space Station K-12 engineer Scott is informed his former wife Glynnis has died. All he has left of her is a holophoto, her pendant and his memories.

Memorable quotesEdit

"You'll have to forgive Mr. Scott. He hasn't been quite right for a few weeks, since he was hit by a lightning bolt from a Greek god."
"You've been in space how long?"

- Kirk and Weiss

"That's my Glynnis. We met when we were little more than children."
"She looks familiar some— Wait a minute, about fifteen years ago, wasn't it? Wasn't she the one on Beta Nirobi II who—"
"Aye. That was her. You've a good memory for women, captain."
"Call it a knack."

- Scott and Kirk
