Star Trek Online’s players and developers pay tribute to the late Christopher Plummer


The movie-watching world lost one of its greats when actor Christopher Plummer passed away on Friday, leaving behind a legacy of notable performances including Captain von Trapp in The Sound of Music, Sir Charles Litton in The Return of the Pink Panther, and General Chang in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.

It’s Plummer’s portrayal of the Klingon general that brings us to memoriams from the developers and players of Star Trek Online as people paid their respects to the actor. The game’s official Twitter offered a few words, writing, “In the hands of a lesser actor, General Chang might have been a stereotype, a one note character. But Christopher Plummer brought a gravitas and a respect to the man that defined Klingons for ages to come. Rest in peace.”

Meanwhile, players have been memorializing the actor and the character of General Chang in-game, either by gathering at the in-game DS9 memorial and on planet Qo’nos or by recreating General Chang in the character creator.

I do hope someone was reciting Shakespeare in Klingon otherwise tribute failed ;)


Man that man was a movie legend and I loved hes roll as Chang. All I can say is can we please have 1 year where no big shot actor dies I mean sure allot of actors I grew up with is old as hell today but still 1 year with out reading about an actor you like passing away. It always makes me so dang sad.


You could tell he was enjoying the heck out of hamming it up too. Class act, all the way.


…might of been the first Klingon to quote Shakespeare too! RIP, Mr. Plummer. /bows
