With the upcoming 50th anniversary of the franchise, one lucky fan will win the opportunity of a lifetime: a walk-on role in the new “Star Trek” movie, titled “Star Trek Beyond.”
The announcement was made in video that aired on “Good Morning America” today. The video featured the stars of the upcoming “Star Trek Beyond” on the deck of the fictional U.S.S. Enterprise. Among the actors present were Zoe Saldana, Idris Elba, Anton Yelchin and Karl Urban.
The lucky winner will fly to the closed set of “Star Trek Beyond” for hair, makeup and wardrobe for the character.
Five other winners will be selected to form the Star Trek: To Boldly Go crew, an honorary group that will visit the film set, meet the cast and be among the first to view scenes from the film.
Each winner will be able to bring a guest on his or her experience.
The filmmakers have teamed up with charity platform Omaze for the contest, and fans must make a minimum $10 donation in order to enter to win the prizes.
Proceeds will be split among the following nine global causes, which were nominated by the film’s stars:
“Star Trek Beyond” is expected to hit theaters next summer.
