In the Next Generation Season 6 episode 'Relics' Montgomery Scott is famously found by the Enterprise-D crew suspended in a transporter buffer for 75 years. He is released and adjusts somewhat to life in that time during the course of the episode. This is of course just a fun way to get Scotty into a TNG episode, but it has pretty drastic consequences on the original series crew in my view.
Is Scotty missed? Is he assumed dead? Do any of his legendary science fiction friends and colleagues try to find him? I know Scotty is in retirement at this point and I suppose Generations means that Kirk is dead, but still, I was surprised how this episode ended when I rewatched it recently.
So, was Scotty missed and did any of his former crewmates do anything about it?
