For the past several weeks, Star Trek Beyond has partnered with Omaze for the “Star Trek: To Boldly Go” campaign, which allows fans who donate $10 or more to be chosen at random to be part of the “To Boldly Go Crew”. If you’re chosen, you get to fly “to Vancouver to visit the closed set and meet the cast of Star Trek Beyond. Additionally, supporters will also be automatically entered to with the once-in-a-lifetime grand prize: a walk-on-role!” Your donation will go to support nine global causes, each one chosen by a Star Trek Beyond cast member.
Omaze is releasing a series of videos to keep people interested, and today we’re proud to exclusively debut the latest one, which features director Justin Lin, Omaze co-founder Ryan Cummins, and the magic of well-timed explosions. Check out the video below.
Enter to win by going to Omaze.com/StarTrek. If you win the grand prize, you and a friend will be flown to Vancouver and stay in a 4-star hotel, go behind the scenes, hang out with the cast, witness filming, and be transformed by hair, makeup and costume to be a Star Trek character and get a walk-on role in the film. And even if you don’t win, you still donated money to some amazing charities.
