Star Trek: Discovery Just Gave Anton Yelchin The Perfect Tribute

Star Trek: Discovery Just Gave Anton Yelchin The Perfect Tribute
This week’s episode of Star Trek: Discovery paid homage to two of the franchise’s much-missed stars. “Unification III” was mostly a kind of sequel to classic Next Generation two-parter “Unification,” with Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) discovering that her brother Spock’s dream of unifying the Vulcan and Romulan peoples was ultimately fulfilled. Leonard Nimoy even appeared via a touching use of archival footage.

Besides Nimoy, though, the episode also found room to offer the perfect tribute to Anton Yelchin, who played Pavel Chekov in the three reboot movies. Tragically, he passed away at the age of 27, just before the release of Star Trek Beyond. Discovery has now given him the highest sign of respect that a Trek actor could ask for, though, as he’s had a Federation ship named after him, the U.S.S. Yelchin. Not only that, but the ship is also of key importance to the ongoing storyline.
