A dedicated "Star Trek" fan with terminal cancer was granted his last wish with a private screening of "Star Trek Into Darkness" before dying just days later on Jan. 4.
Daniel Craft, one of the directors of the New York Asian Film Festival, was able to view a DVD screener of J.J. Abrams' upcoming "Star Trek" movie thanks to Abrams. Craft died of liver cancer, according to fellow NYAFF founder Grady Hendrix.
In a post on the "Star Trek" section of Reddit.com, Hendrix thanked the online community for helping getting the story picked up by the media and eventually onto the radar of Abrams, who dispatched a producer to Craft's New York home with a rough cut of the film.
"The last thing he got to do that gave him pleasure was watch the new 'Star Trek' movie. And it's because of you," Hendrix wrote.
