To me, the new cast of the Star Trek movies from 2009 on could never recapture or replace the magic of the original cast.
they have created their own new magic, and Anton Yelchin especially
brought an infectious charm and good-natured comic relief to his
interpretation of the Enterprising navigator and sometime engineer
this afternoon of his untimely accidental death was truly horrific
and shocking, especially just one month before the release of his
third big-screen outing as Chekov, by which time he had completely
grown into the role and made it unmistakably his own.
Anton Yelchin's spirit live long and prosper, and peace and love to
his family, friends, and loved ones.
