    ^Could you outline him? Because I'm just not seeing it.

    How is it him? I honestly can't see him, all I see is a very thin clinder.

    No. That's not Artoo. In fact what you've outlined isn't even the shape of the object there!

    Any screenshots? I never heard of that and I don't have TPM on DVD.

    The debris field would be the most logical choice as the FX department was ILM.

    Where's R2-D2? THERE'S R2D2!

    Alright everybody, here is exactly where R2D2 is. I don't have any screen shots as I wouldn't know how to grab 'em.

    Ready?

    R2 appears towards the end of the film when Spock prime and old Spock meet. He appears a couple of minutes into their conversation. The exact point to find R2 is smack dab in old Spock's following dialog: "As my customary farewell would seem oddly self-serving, I shall simply say, good luck".

    I've only seen one screen shot that came remotely close to finding him. But alas, they had focused on the wrong background item.

    To be more specific, R2D2 is sitting on a platform in the background to the right of the screen. He sits next to a transporter and is actually covered in fog. About half way through old Spock's above mentioned dialog the fog is lifted and there he is, R2D2.

    I have looked into other peoples' ideas of where R2 is only to find it was not him. Everywhere from when Kirk and old Spock meet Scotty to the destroyed ship's debris above Vulcan. He does not appear. I could see how someone could have mistaken these foriegn background items for R2 but I assure you these sightings are wrong.

    If you find yourself back in the theatre, take a look. R2D2 is there. I have observed this sighting over four times. With each viewing he becomes more and more clear. Have a look-see!

    It could be a very very clever competition. Think about it, it's only out in the cinemas, not legally in any other format, and to have a real chance of finding r2, you'd have to be able to search through with pause and rewind, therefore Paramount know that there's a fairly good chance that anybody who enters the competition has illegally downloaded the movie, and been kind enough to let Paramount know this, along with their address and personal details.

    Or maybe I'm just an old cynic...

    Sure, they might "know" - but they won't be able to prove so it doesn't really matter...

    I don't have a ready screenshot on hand, but after Padme adresses the Senate and decided to return to Naboo with the Jedi and Anakin they all go to a nighttime landing platform to board her silver royal starship. The Enterprise zooms by below in the traffic of the city.

    Actually, the new crew of the Enterprise is more like the Backstreet Boys than Beasty Boys, but YMMV.....

    I'm surprised Nokia is still around in the post-WWIII/First Contact new world economy with no money. Maybe they offer consumer technology for free or in exchange for services.

    I've never paid for a freaking cellphone today, I don't see why they would in the future. But you should see what they do to you if if try cancelling your service...

    It could also be that the Noia phone is part of the decoration of the Corvette, and is either an Antique, or meant to match the 20th/21st Century period of the Corvette.
