Nearly seven years after his death, a portion of James Doohan's ashes made their way to outer space this morning. A privately owned rocket carrying food and other supplies to the international space station also carried the cremated remains of over 300 space fans, including Doohan, which will now orbit Earth for the next year or so.

We all miss you down here on Earth, Scotty. Glad you finally get to travel through space for real.

(James Doohan, Star Trek)

The miniseries comes out in May, and this particular issue won't be here until July. Still, Tom Baker's Doctor alongside Kirk and Spock? Why does July have to be three months away?

Yeah, I know. It's not David Tennant as the Tenth Doctor lighting the torch like we all want, but this is still pretty cool. The BBC has confirmed that Matt Smith will be part of the relay team carrying the torch to London's Olympic Stadium. He has been named lead runner for tomorrow, May 26, and will carry the flame through part of Cardiff.

"To carry the Torch is an honour, one I thought I'd never get," Smith said, "I'm very excited!"

Sure it's not what we all want, but we still get to see a version of The Doctor doing what he does best: running.
