I suggest a new strategy, Artoo.

Let the fanwank win.

The rest of the movie was just like Star Wars. Why not put the damn droid in too?

/sigh...

They left out,

"and of course there is a love interest that both our hero and his friend share, causing some tensions until her choice is obvious."

If R2's somewhere in this movie, we can only expect Threepio to show up in the next one. Probably as a conduit shape or really, really gay admiral.

Maybe R2 was a trash/waste bin in sickbay...where hypos go when they are used up.

R2D2 In Star Trek XI? (Spoilers!)

Link to MTV

Here’s a cool little contest which comes to us by way of the current mecca for social networking, Facebook. Evil mastermind J.J. Abrams slyly inserted an R2-D2 cameo into his highly successful “Star Trek” reboot. And Paramount is challenging you fans to find him. The prize? A highly coveted official “Star Trek” prop. There’s really not much more to tell you. The rules are pretty simple. Locate R2, write down where you saw him in an e-mail, and shoot it off to facebook@paramount.com with “STAR TREK Easter Egg Sweepstakes” in the subject line. I couldn’t care less about winning the prop, but it would warm this “Star Wars” geek’s heart to see the plucky little droid pop up in a “Star Trek” movie. Maybe J.J. will figure out a way to kill off Jar Jar for his second “Trek” go-round.
------

I have seen the film a couple of times in Imax now, and I haven't spotted the little droid that could anywhere. I'm guessing he's somewhere in the wreckage when the Enterprise warps into Vulcan. Anyone seen the little fella? If you have, see above, you could win a prop from the film!

Are you sure the contest is US exclusive?

We think so. Not 100% certain, though.

Any hint where you think he is?

Re: I think I've found R2...

Oh, hell, I'm not even sure. I think R2 is located on the saucer section, at the rear. The blueish dome on the refit Connie has been modified (again, speculations) and now, it looks more like R2 is attached to an X-Wing...
