Its name is a reference to the famous phrase "Beam me up, Scotty," from the science fiction TV show, Star Trek. Ironically, this quote was infamously misquoted; it was never actually said in the show.

This trick makes a zombie with decent stats that won't fail you in combat. Furthermore, since zombie tricks are played after plants play, you can play this trick as you would play a 2/3 zombie without being affected by plant abilities or tricks, with the exception being Brainana. You can play this trick on a lane with a plant that has 2 strength or less to keep it alive, as well as destroying that plant if it has 2 health or less as well. Worst case scenario, this can at least block a powerful attack from a plant with a lot of strength for a cheap price of 2 brains.
This trick is difficult to combat, as it make a zombie with above average stats as early as the second turn. Because it is a trick, there is no telling where it will be played. Though usually, your opponent will either play it to take care of weak plants or attack the plant hero. In addition, it is a science zombie, meaning Zombot Drone Engineer can boost its strength, which can be troubling early in the game. Wall-Nut and Potato Mine are recommended to protect plants, as well as any other plant with Team-Up.
- Before update 1.2.11, if one looked at Space Cadet while viewing Beam Me Up's description, they could see that there was no dirt surrounding him. This was likely an oversight.
