The grand prize winner gets a LCD HD TV and Blu-ray player along with a Surround Sound Home Theater Speaker system, and of course a a copy Star Trek on Blu-ray. And to round it out, the grand prize winner also gets a a screen-accurate replica of the U.S.S.

The contest website is at www.startreksweeps.com. 20 Runner ups will get the 2-disk DVD edition of Star Trek.

The chair that you could win is the same one that was seen last weekend on the CBS show The NFL Today. The show kicked off with Star Trek theme, including "Captain Boomer Esiason" doing the show intro in the chair.

6. James Cannon - Runcorn Trekkie - November 18, 2009

Once again us Brits are screwed…
How about a comp we CAN enter?!?

7. Pontihog - November 18, 2009

That was painless.

8. CmdrR - November 18, 2009

Does it have vibra-matic heat? Cup holder? Clicker?

9. Kirk, James T. - November 18, 2009

sucks, hey trekmovie, can you tell JJ Abrams to persue CBS/paramount to set up an international version of this competition and others like it so that people actually know and can invest time in Star Trek who aren’t in the US – come on it wasn’t just popular in the US – it was a global success – would have been a bigger hit abroad if CBS/Paramount made more of an effort to include the rest of the world with Star Trek.

10. Capt. of the USS Anduril - November 18, 2009

Boomer Esiason….out of the chair. :P

Entered, though I doubt I’ll win. Never hurts to try though!

11. The Unknown Poster - November 18, 2009

They should really jazz this thing up. Put a universal remote in the arm rest. maybe a speaker phone with call display too!

And open this up to us Canadians!

12. doug_skywalker - November 18, 2009

watching Stat Trek in HD with surround sound and a huge TV in THE captain’s chair…gives me goosebumps…

13. jc - November 18, 2009

US only again, huh?

Rest of the world gets screwed

14. Simon - November 18, 2009

I don’t know why people get their panties in a bunch over contests. There are different laws internationally regarding them. It’s a legal nightmare and I don’t blame contest organizers for whatever laws other countries have on the books. A lot of contests will even limit things state to state because of different laws.

15. Darkwing - November 18, 2009

but the world is getting more global every day, and the governments and there legal limits for contests is still running on cassette tape. they need to get with the times and realize we’re one community now, not several

16. THX-1138 - November 18, 2009

Dear international contest hopefuls:

What I believe #14 Simon is getting at is that the problem lies not with the U.S. contest promoters but rather with the individual governments outside the U.S. and their laws as pertains to contests. Obviously I am no expert in all the laws governing contests internationally, but I would imagine that in most of the democratic republics of the world one can have an influence over laws through the elective process.

17. VorpalK - November 18, 2009

What #16 said.

If companies have to invest the money to make sure they’re legal and can’t possibly get sued world-wide because of obscure regulations, they just won’t have the contest at all. Sorry you can’t play, but I’ll take what I can get.

I don’t get to watch the BBC internet feed because my IP is not in the UK. Not happy, but that’s the way it goes.

18. JYHASH - November 18, 2009

I’m sure it’s in the Rules that no one ever reads, but does anyone know how many times, per household you can enter? I wants me a Chair.

Even if I have to build one myself…

~JYH

19. AdamTrek - November 18, 2009

You can enter once per day until December 11th.

The value of the grand prize is $4490.

I hope someone from this site wins it.

=A=

20. Happy Russia - November 18, 2009

Meh. Ugly chair and it really doesn’t look /that/ comfy. What’s ironic is that the TOS chair doesn’t look comfy, but it’s surprisingly comfy! I could be surprised by it, but I don’t want it. I’m still trying to save enough money to get the TOS working replica chair.

21. Michael - November 18, 2009

I’m going to win, my pyschic told me so. So you can all stop entering! HA!
The chair, cool , but had it been from the classic tv show!….., but the BD/system is awesome!

22. Anthony Pascale - November 18, 2009

RE: USA
it is not some kind of plot, contests are almost always country specific. There were UK, Canadian, German and Australian contests around the release of Star Trek, and we will be happy to report on any when we learn of them.

RE: winner
If the winner is one of you all, sending in pics of the chair in your house is a must!

23. CarlG - November 18, 2009

@11: And if they do open it for Canadians, make sure it’s open for Quebecers, too. We always get double-screwed by these contests. :(

24. Parker York - November 18, 2009

I don’t care if I don’t win the chair or home theater. As long as I can get a free copy of the best blockbuster of 2009.

Besides, I want to design my own captain’s chair and bridge anyway. Hell, when I buy a house, I’m going to design the whole thing like the interior of a Starship.

25. Anthony Thompson - November 19, 2009

I’m entered. If I win the chair, I hope Bob Orci will personally present it to me (JJ would be OK, too). : )

26. scottlukaswilliams - November 19, 2009

No love for Canada. As usual.

27. Captain Wowser Uk - November 19, 2009

I want that chair for when Star Trek Online comes out in Feb’10! Oh the joy… I could jury-rig it to my pc so i can fire phasers and photons while spinning around and laughing hysterically! [I have clamed down again -US only! boo hiss ;)]

28. Bryan - November 19, 2009

yep, nothing for Canada yet again, oh well… Good luck to those who can actually enter the contest!

29. Googis McGooginhymen - November 19, 2009

Does Canada deserve any love? We’re still suffering from the auditoriy rape that is Celine Dion and Bryan Adams.

Honestly, now, folks – these contests are targeted at the consumers living in their country of origin. You don’t hear folks bitching they can’t enter UK contests, or Australian, or Iraqi (not that it’s all too hard to sign up and win a free trip over there these days anyway, is it?). If I live in Zimbabwe and want to enter the contest and can’t, I get over. Why let it ruin my day. I only had a one in eight kajillion chance of winning even the 8th place consolation prize of a six month supply of Budweiser Classic.

I know im being harsh here and that real aliens want to enter our contests, but it’s been this way for YEARS people. Why do you expect it to change anytime soon?

30. captain_neill - November 19, 2009

I would prefer getting a replica of the original 60′s TOS captain’s chair and Captain Picard’s chair over the new movie one

31. THX-1138 - November 19, 2009

To those outside the U.S.: Please read posts 29, 22, 17, 16, and 14.

It sort of explains the thing about contests. People from the U.S. can’t enter contests in England, Canada, Australia, Germany, Italy, France, Central America, South America, Asia, the former Soviet Republic, The Middle East, or Africa.

As a U.S. Citizen, I apologize that Star Trek and the companies that produce it and hold the commercial rights to it are based in my country. But that’s how it is.

32. Mr. Anonymous - November 19, 2009

Where would I even PUT this?! =)

33. Enterprisingguy - November 19, 2009

I have to agree with number 20. That’s probably one of the worst Captain’s chairs they’ve ever come up with. The arm rests are so low it’s not funny. I’d never be able to sit in that thing through a whole movie. I think I’d rather take the helm!

But it’s a great contest none the less!

34. CarlG - November 19, 2009

@29: We gave you William Shatner, James Doohan, Bruce Greenwood, and Senator Vreenak.

You’re welcome.

35. FrequencySpike - November 19, 2009

@34
…and my personal favorite Canadian export – poutine!

36. Captain Dunsel - November 19, 2009

Note to any potential winner:

Don’t forget – If you win this thing, you will OWE INCOME TAXES on its published retail value, as if you had received that amount of cash. For some, it could even change your tax bracket, increasing your rate.

37. Andros - November 19, 2009

I thought that was Richard Dean Anderson when I first saw the picture.

38. Losira - November 19, 2009

Yes I fully agree with such syrange rules on a cobtest that should be global! After all starfleet is diverse repeesenting countrues ..and PLAETS to boot! Idea: each country has their own chair etc. Thatts fair ok?

39. The TOS Purist aka The Purolator - November 19, 2009

Why the hell would I ever want that piece of sh*t chair that isn’t even barely recognizable as a redesign of the TOS captain’s chair? Does it also come with the pointless decorative wall of lens-flare causing lights behind it?

40. CarlG - November 19, 2009

@39: Then why the hell’d you post?

41. Lieutenant - November 19, 2009

This would be great to win! I was saving up for a TOS Captain’s chair, but since it’s so big, being able to get this version would also be fantastic because it would fit into my room much more nicely. Especially since I won’t have to pay money! :D

42. frederick von fronkensteen - November 20, 2009

I’d like to have enough money to design and build a house SHAPED like the Enteprise, like this fan:

43. Michael - November 20, 2009

Notcie they’re NOT giving away 20 Bluray copies of the film! Just that older format…dvd? HA!

44. Lore - November 20, 2009

All non US people complaining about not being able to enter. Get you ticket sales up and I bet they would have a separate international competition.

45. Beam It Down - November 30, 2009

QmX has been bringing some fantastic Star Trek collectibles to the market. This Captains Chair would make an amazing addition to anyones collection.
