The producers of Star Trek Beyond have decided to dedicate the film to Anton Yelchin following his tragic death on June 19th, according to Hollywood Life. The filmmakers are allegedly in the process of adding a tribute to the film’s end credits.
This would mark the third time a Star Trek film has carried a dedication. Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home carried a dedication card that appeared before the film honoring the crew of the Spaceship Challenger following the 1986 disaster. Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country was in production as series creator Gene Roddenberry’s health was deteriorating and he passed before it opened. Like Star Trek IV, the film was dedicated to Roddenberry with a title card before the opening credits.
