Rarely does a contest come around that checks off three major boxes on one's bucket list, but the latest big Omaze campaign is officially here to do exactly that: one, give you the chance to rub shoulders with the likes of Chris Pine and Idris Elba, two, give you the chance to beam up to space in a freaking "Star Trek" movie, and three, give you the chance to donate generously to charity from the bottom of your heart.
A star-studded video announced the kickoff of the “Star Trek: To Boldly Go” contest on Tuesday (July 14), and the winner of said contest will win the grand prize of a walk-on role in Justin Lin’s "Star Trek Beyond." (And maybe the opportunity to know who Elba is playing before the rest of Planet Earth?!)
As Pine and co. reveal in the video, a simple $10 donation is all it takes to earn 100 entries into the contest, and the money will go straight to nine charities that are near and dear to the actors' hearts. Six other lucky earthlings will be honored as the “Star Trek: To Boldly Go” crew and get to visit the set, and numerous other prizes are available via larger donations -- like a token "Star Trek" red shirt signed by the cast for $5,000, for example, or a replica captain's chair for $100,000. (Shockingly, these are almost sold out.)
Of course, donating at higher levels will also increase your chances at winning the grand prize, so you'd better get stepping on gathering that couch change, because the contest closes on September 1st.
We're coming for you, Idris!
"Star Trek Beyond" will hit theaters on July 8, 2016.
