TrekMovie are reporting that the upcoming Star Trek Beyond will be dedicated to Anton Yelchin.
According to TrekMovie, the producers are in the process of adding a tribute to the films end credits.
For those of you who have been fans of Star Trek for a while, you’ll know that there have been tribute messages in previous Trek films – Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.
The original report, from Hollywood Life, suggests the tribute to Anton might be more than a plaque with a dedication on screen.
It seems to suggest that there could be a montage of some sort, which would be a beautiful way to honour Anton, as well as us fans.
