Star Trek actor James Doohan's ashes will be beamed into space next month on a rocket ship and scattered across the galaxy.

The actor played chief engineer Montgomery Scott on the classic TV show, which coined the famous phrase, "Beam me up Scotty."

A private company will launch the rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida, which will carry the ashes of 185 other people whose loved ones have paid between $995 to $5,300 for their remains to be scattered into space.

Mercury and Gemini program astronaut Gordon Cooper will also be on board for his third trip into space.
