The "Star Trek" icon died in 2005 after a battle with pneumonia and Alzheimer's disease. He was 85.

A 2008 attempt to launch Doohan's ashes into space -- in accordance with his wishes -- was a failure, E! said.

His dream came true, however, when his remains, along with those of more than 300 other deceased individuals, were released into the cosmos Tuesday, the report said.
