R2D2 In Star Trek

— Posted by John Campea

I got the heads up from Kristina today that Paramount purposefully but an R2D2 cameo/easter egg in the new Star Trek movie. Did you see him in there? I certainly didn’t… but now I’m going to be looking for him the next time I go (probably tomorrow night).

Paramount has even made a contest out of it. Find R2D2 and you could win an official prop from the movie.

MTV gives us these details:

There’s really not much more to tell you. The rules are pretty simple. Locate R2, write down where you saw him in an e-mail, and shoot it off to [email protected] with “STAR TREK Easter Egg Sweepstakes” in the subject line. I couldn’t care less about winning the prop, but it would warm this “Star Wars” geek’s heart to see the plucky little droid pop up in a “Star Trek” movie. Maybe J.J. will figure out a way to kill off Jar Jar for his second “Trek” go-round.

Know where R2D2 is? Did you see him when you saw Star Trek? Let me know either way.

    During the Drill Machine sequence as the Enterprise comes out of its barrel role amidst destruction of the other Federation ships above Vulcan, we cut to an interior Enterprise bridge over the shoulder of Kirk that is looking out through the front viewscreen. In space, R2-D2 is floating in the debris from about the top middle of the screen to the bottom right.
