J.J. Abrams granted a Star Trek fan's dying wish to see Star Trek: Into Darkness before he passed away.
That man, Daniel Craft, is no longer with us.
“It’s very sensitive. [It was] unbelievably touching.”
The way he delivered the very few words about it were very telling, as he hadn't been expecting to be asked about it during a panel for Revolution. He was clearly overwhelmed by the opportunity and responsibility to grant a dying man’s wish.
Cancer sucks. Daniel had been diagnosed just six weeks ago with a terminal diagnosis. A friend posted online about how much he wanted to see the flick, and J.J. responded personally and privately, and sent a DVD with an early cut for Daniel to watch.
The movie won't be out until May.
We hope you're in a better play, Daniel. Our hearts go out to him, his family, and friends.
