Today, let us pay tribute to a man who has made his mark on Star Trek: Anton Yelchin, may he rest in peace.
Anton was born in Russia to a Jewish family and moved to the United States with his parents when he was six months old.
Anton was more than just an actor in recent Star Trek movies, he was an inspiration to many people. Anton brought joy and smiles to the faces of friends, fans, and family alike. He will be remembered in our hearts and minds as a talented, gifted, kind, funny, and charismatic man. Anton Yelchin touched more lives than he could ever know with his portrayal of Pavel Chekov in the Star Trek reboot trilogy.
Losing a member of the Star Trek Community is always a sad and heartbreaking experience, as was proven with the death of Leonard Nimoy last year. Anton’s death was a tragic loss that will be felt for many years to come.
The entire Star Trek community sends its thoughts, prayers, and condolences to those Anton has left behind, and the members of UFOP: StarBase 118 Star Trek PBEM RPG would like to invite you to sharing your thoughts and feelings on this loss on our Facebook post.
