J.J. Abrams’ re-think of the Star Trek universe was many more times Romulus shatteringly awesome than even the most optimistic Trek geek ever hoped. It re-energized an aging property. Everyone outside (and many within) fandom believed it could not be done. Making more than $380 million in worldwide box office, the film was successful in kindling the flame of Trek-love and guaranteeing a sequel and many more romps through the Trek universe.
The DVD hits store shelves on November 17th. Because we geeked to the movie so hard, we’re offering you the chance to win a copy of the 2-disc special edition DVD complete with digital copy.
But wait! That’s not all.
We’re also throwing in a copy of IDW’s terrific prequel comic Star Trek: Countdown. Countdown tells the story of Spock and Nero fighting to avert the disaster which spawns the events of the film. In thrilling fashion, we are provided the tale of two men from vastly different backgrounds who become allies. We see how allies become bitter enemies.
Countdown enriches the enjoyment of the film, but it’s great on its own.
One lucky winner gets both the DVD and Star Trek: Countdown.
