Star Trek Beyond gives a chance to do good and a glimpse at a new alien…

July 23rd, 2015 by Marc Comments


What’s that, you say? You’d like to get a look at a new Star Trek alien? Well, we got this…

Justin Lin’s Star Trek Beyond is part of a philanthropic initiative with Omaze called ‘Star Trek: To Boldly Go’.

If you click the link below, you’ll have a chance to appear in the third Star Trek movie (since the reboot, we know!) as well as give money to a good cause and Simon Pegg and Anton Yelchin have revealed a behind-the-scenes look at a new Star Trek Beyond alien!

This week’s charity organization is Camp Sunshine, which provides respite, support, joy, and hope to children with life-threatening illnesses and their immediate families from around the world through the various stages of their journeys. The year-round program is free of charge to all families, and includes 24-hour onsite medical and psychosocial support. Camp Sunshine also provides bereavement sessions for families who have lost a child to supported illnesses.

For each $10 contribution made through the Omaze fundraising platform, eligible participants will be automatically entered for a chance to win a once-in-a-lifetime experience and visit the set of the July 8, 2016 release.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
