Great episode, IMHO. Riley in the engine room, Sulu hanging off ladders waving a foil about and Scotty complaining that he can't change the laws
Scotty was drunk at the time he was complaining about the laws of physics? I had figured that complaining about the laws of physics was part of his normal personality, like complaining about the state of his beloved engines!
