Plans to rocket late Star Trek actor James Doohan's ashes into space have been put on hold after a similar spacecraft developed a fuel leak and crashed into the Pacific Ocean.

Doohan, who played engineer Scotty in the cult sci-fi TV show, requested that his ashes be sent into the cosmos.

Now private consortium Space X are set to send Doohan's remains into the galaxy on Falcon 2--after they have figured out how to prevent another disastrous crash.

Consortium leader Elon Musk says, "At least we had a successful lift-off and Falcon made it well clear of the lift-off."
