Well, in addition, Montgomery Scott was rarely in charge of the transporter, as he was the head engineer. The actual transporter chief on the original series was a fellow by the name of Mr. Kyle. Most of the times someone needed to be beamed up, it was usually just something like "three to beam up".
the one who occasionally beamed up the crew in the animated series and the films (where stuff like "Beam me up, Mr. Scott" were
actually said) partially because the crew was whittled down to the primary characters in both versions. The animated series and films were likely seen by more non-fans in their original TV and theatrical runs than the original TV series.
