Fans donating to charity have a chance to win a walk-on role in Star Trek Beyond.

In addition to that grand prize, six other fans will get to visit the set and hang with the Star Trek Beyond crew.

“In an unprecedented event, the cast of the Star Trek film franchise has created a unique philanthropic initiative in partnership with Omaze. The Star Trek: To Boldly Go campaign will support the cast’s personal selection of nine global causes, which will each receive equal portions of the funds raised when fans enter for a chance to win a walk-on role in director Justin Lin‘s Star Trek Beyond, the third film in the blockbuster franchise, released on July 8, 2016. The campaign runs from 12:01 a.m. PST on July 14th until 11:59 p.m. PST September 1st.”

A $10 donation is all that is needed to enter for a chance to win the once-in-a-lifetime experience. The more that is donated, the more chances one has of winning.

The Grand Prize winner and a guest will fly to Vancouver and stay in a four-star hotel, “Go behind the scenes of Star Trek Beyond, hang with the cast, and experience the filming of the movie, [and] be transformed by hair, makeup and costume teams into a Star Trek character and filmed for a scene in Star Trek Beyond.”

“In addition to the Grand Prize Winner, six additional winners will be randomly selected throughout the campaign to form the honorary Star Trek: To Boldly Go crew.” This crew will “visit the closed set and meet the cast of Star Trek Beyond; be among the first to see scenes from the latest film,” and “travel to Vancouver.”

Omaze is excited to bring this truly once-in-a-lifetime experience to Star Trek fans around the world,” said Ryan Cummins, Co-Founder and Co-CEO. “We are proud to give fans the chance to live out their dream experience while simultaneously helping nine great causes. By allowing anyone to enter for just $10, we are seeing the power our community has in making an impact around the world.”

The nine charities and which actors nominated each are:

  • Brave Beginnings, an organization dedicated to ensuring that ventilators and life-saving neonatal equipment are always available to newborns in critical need. Nominated by Zoë Saldana.
  • Camp Sunshine, a place where children with life-threatening illnesses and their families can regroup, re-energize, and restore hope for the future. Nominated by Anton Yelchin.

  1. “Nominated by Susan Nimoy in honor of Leonard Nimoy.” It was nice to see that in there.

    I wonder if they got the idea for this contest from the walk-on role the “Star Trek Continues” people were selling for ten thousand dollars in their Kickstarter campaign, or if this is independent.

  2. LOL @ Idris Elba busting some moves at the end with some funky disco bridge lighting.

    Anyone think Chris Pine looks like he’s had some bad surgery? His eyes are squinty and his eyebrows look like they’re about to devour his whole face.

  3. I noticed something seemed off about his appearance too. I didn’t think surgery, more like he’s not aging as well as the others. He also seems to have lost some weight, especially in his face.

  4. Crazy idea: How about we donate to charity and NOT have anything to do with this disaster waiting to happen? The fact that people need some incentive to do the right thing is what is wrong with our society. PS: Appearing in JJ-Trek III is some crappy incentive.

  5. I think I’ve worked out what it is. He’s just been very poorly done in makup. If you go full screen and freeze it at around 23 seconds, you’ll see his face is a different colour to the rest of his neck and chest. His face has been whitened with some sort of powder or foundation which under normal viewing makes him look botoxed to hell. He really needs to sort his eyebrows out. They look like twin Cookie Monsters.
