I bought my Star Trek Beyond ticket today to see the entire crew of the USS Enterprise NCC 1701 in action. Today Star Trek premieres in the United States and Ireland and while this is a celebration of the movie and Star Trek's 50th anniversary, during the week special attention was made in particular to honor Anton Yelchin (Chekov) our good friend, companion and guide. So many have mourned the loss of this kind soul.

 J J Abrams said at a San Diego Comic Con on Wednesday "Anton Yelchin should be here," Abrams continued. "Anton's parents are here - Irina and Victor. We love their son, and if I could ask everyone to have a moment of silence for our dear friend Anton."

J.J. Abrams words say it all in this video.

Enjoy. To the max. Which is one of the best memorials that Anton Yelchin could ask for.

Great tribute for someone who should still be alive and sadly isn't. Are you actually at this Comiccon??

Saw it early Friday and it was a lot of fun! Not the best one, but still enjoyable.

Also saw it early Friday. Loved it. There's a subtle nod in the movie to Anton's passing, during a celebratory toast, as Kirk addresses "absent friends," with the screen focusing on Chekov.
