The actual command, "Kirk to Enterprise. Beam us up, Scotty." was voiced by Captain Kirk (voice of William Shatner) in Gene Roddenberry's "Star Trek" animated TV series from 1973-75. The closest Kirk ever got to saying the exact line was "Scotty, beam me up!" in "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home," as he was transported onto the stolen Klingon Bird of Prey vessel parked in the late 20th century in Golden Gate Park. (The misquote was heard in Night of the Comet," "For Queen & Country," and in "Armageddon" - when Rockhound (Steve Buscemi) said: "While I don't share his enthusiasm, you know me, beam me up Scotty.")
