Where's R2-D2? (R2D2 in Star Trek?)

There is a Star Trek Easter Egg Sweepstakes which has the following question:

What scene in the new film STAR TREK features the robot "R2-D2" from Star Wars?

Email your answer to facebook@paramount.com with "STAR TREK Easter Egg Sweepstakes" in the subject line for a chance to win an official prop from the film STAR TREK.
From here

I thought the traffic cop might be a c3p0 type robot, but I don't recall a R2D2 robot in it.

Any one else see it?

He was serving drinks in the bar with his super cool serving drinks attachment on his head.

Game over, man. Game over.

Re: R2D2 in Star Trek?

Maybe its like RAIDERS in 1981 and R2 is visible as some back-wall decoration or picture. Maybe its in the Riverside, Iowa bar where Kirk meets Uhura? One of the posters and framed pics on the back wall?

Maybe it's in amongst the floating rubble that the Enterprise flies into when they get to Vulcan?

Good theory. Just like the heavy air traffic over Coruscant in EPISODE I helped hide where Lucas and ILM slipped in the Enterprise for her cameo.

I think it was in the bar, right when the fight starts.

It wasn't even being discussed that R2D2 was in it! We all totally missed it!

We aren't very good nitpickers.

Oh, we're good. When given a little advance notice, we're the BEST.

Or the worst. Depending on your point of view.

I didn't see it, but I'm thinking somewhere in the Delta Vega station as Old Spock and Kirk are on their way to meet Scotty would be a likely place to look; there was all sorts of half-seen and barely-seen stuff cluttering up the place. Or on their way to the shuttle before beaming from DV to the Enterprise seems another likely spot, for the same reasons.

Kirk throws away a Coke can, and R2 is the trash can.
