: Dear sir/Madam,

: Would you tell me the meaning of the phrase 'Beam Me Up Scotty'in both English and Chines? I'll appreciate your help.

"Beam me up Scotty" means a person wants out of a embarrassing or bad situation or away from a place. It is a command used frequently on "Star Trek." Crew member Scotty would "beam up" or transport Captain Kirk (or whoever) up from a planet Kirk was visiting.

I don't know what it means in Chinese but I am assuming it means the same thing.
