Esurance, Paramount’s new Star Trek promotional partner has a new cool website (esurance.com/startrek) with behind the scenes video, movie assets, and a ‘Biggest Trekkie’ video contest, with the winner going to the Hollywood premiere. Starting today TrekMovie will feature one of these videos as our weekly favorite, and award the weekly winner with an Esurance Star Trek T-Shirt. Check it out below [note video autoplays after you hit ‘more’].

Win a trip to the premiere of Star Trek – TrekMovie will help
In order to enter the contest yourself, you must upload a video to The Biggest Trekkie Contest page at esurance.com/startrek. The winner gets a trip for 2 to the Hollywood premiere of Star Trek. Entries must be made by March 5th. The winner of the prize is selected using a number of factors, including how highly the video is rated on the Esurance site. (see Esurance site for full contest rules and eligibility)
TrekMovie is hoping that a reader of this site is the one to win the big prize, so every week we will pick a video from a reader that we like and profile it here. The added exposure should give that video a boost in its ratings (assuming TrekMovie readers like it too). And the maker of the TrekMovie Esurance video of the week will also get a special T-Shirt, courtesy of TrekMovie and Esurance. The shirts are being made up now, but the design can be seen below.
