Star Wars droid R2-D2 made a cameo in the 2009 Star Trek movie, which left some fans wondering if the little guy made it into Star Trek Into Darkness. Now that the film is out on home media, R2-D2 has been spotted. Hi there!


Reader Rafael Oca passed along this screen shot, from somewhere around the one hour, 17-minute mark. After the Vengeance fires on the Enterprise while the ships are in warp, poor R2 gets sucked out of the ship with other members of the crew. I'm sure this plucky fellow will find a way back into the next film, though.



Just more proof that JJ Abrams won't rest satisfied until he's completely turned Star Trek into Star Wars, and taken away everything that makes it Trek.

I'm convinced Abrams is a Star Wars fan who pulled the ultimate troll on us Trekkies.
