    One of the few worthy parts of the Star Trek reboot.
    Very likeable.
    May he rest in peace.

    We got this news as I was having Father's Day lunch with my older son and daughter-in-law. A very freak accident, it appears.

    RIP

    Yeah this was a shock he was one of those actors that I think was on the verge of greatness he was always watchable and was one of the better things about Terminator:Salvation I loved him as Charlie Brewster and thought he was superb in new Trek I pretty much liked him in everything

    This is a very depressing bit of news and must be very hard for his family 27 is at least 40 years to soon :(

    His vehicle may have been part of a recall for not going into park correctly and possibly rolling away.... Hell of a way to go.

    out of all the characters on the newer star treks..... it was pretty much unanimous around here or for anyone i personally knew that enjoyed star trek that while his character and use of the language to mimic the original character as it was portrayed as being flawless..... he still didn't fit quite right among the rest as well.... While i overlooked it.. many did not...

    Just to note about this. There's nothing wrong with the automatic gear boxes. They work as they should. Problem is people doesn't understand how they work. It's a new type of automatic gearbox that automatically goes into park when you turn the engine off. If you leave the engine on you need to set it to park manually before you exit the car, just like in "normal" automatics. People get fooled by the fact that it does it automatically when you turn it off so they seem to think it reads their minds. Apparently the recall is to change this in some way. FCA isn't the only manufacturer using this type of gearbox, BMW and Audi uses them too and they work in exectly the same fashion.
