Star Trek fan died shortly after special screening

THE AVID Star Trek fan who was granted his final wish to see the latest instalment in the franchise died shortly after watching the unfinished Into Darkness movie.

A friend posted a plea to see the upcoming film on behalf of Daniel Craft, 41, on internet social media site Reddit about a week ago.

The message quickly made its way to director J.J. Abrams, who granted him access to an early draft.

It isn't due to be released in cinemas until May.

"A day or so after the thread began, Paige, Dan's wife, got a voicemail from J.J. Abrams and Damon Lindelof that was very nice and very straightforward: a producer for the movie would get in touch with them," the friend wrote in a follow-up post.
