'Star Trek Beyond' Partners With Omaze for New Charity Campaign (Exclusive)
This year, the final frontier is San Diego Comic-Con. Or, at least, it can be for the lucky Star Trek fan who wins the grand prize of attending the red-carpet world premiere for Star Trek Beyond at the pop culture event at the heart of the latest Star Trek Omaze campaign.
Following last year's To Boldly Go campaign, Star Trek is partnering with fundraising platform Omaze for a new campaign supporting The Mission Continues, a non-profit that supports veterans as they return to the U.S. from active military service, launching today.
As Zachary Quinto reveals in the launch video debuting exclusively below, those supporting the new campaign will be entered into a drawing to attend the July 20 premiere of Star Trek Beyond at the Embarcadero Marina Park South in San Diego alongside the cast and crew from the movie.
"One lucky Omaze winner gets to join us for the entire evening — the premiere, the red carpet, the afterparty, we get to hang out, we get to take pictures, we get to talk Trek and you get to be the envy of 130,000 crazy Comic-Con fans," Quinto reveals before joking, "Actually, that sounds terrifying."
More information about the campaign can be found here. For those less fortunate than the winner, Star Trek Beyond, directed by Justin Lin and featuring Quinto, Chris Pine, Simon Pegg and Idris Elba, opens July 22.
