um. .you do realize that he is already a "replacement actor"
the original Chekhov is Walter Koenig . . so while it's terrible that this young actor has died, they absolutely are going to re-cast for the next film (the one about to come out is in post production, so they won't refilm any scenes, but likely will dedicate the film to him).
but bottom line? a Star Trek film (based on the original series, rather than Next Gen, or Voyager, or DS9, or etc. . . ), simply can't have no Chekhov on the bridge.
