Next Spring, Star Trek joins the pantheon of franchises to get its own Scene It? Deluxe Edition DVD trivia game. This week the new Star Trek SceneIt? website went live and fans can enter a contest that awards cool prizes and a chance at having their questions included in the game itself.
Take the Final Frontier Challenge
SceneIt is the popular DVD Trivia game from Mattel that is getting its own Star Trek version in early 2009 (see TrekMovie preview). As with their other Star Trek game of 2009, 20Q (see previous Trekmovie.com story), Mattel is giving fans a chance to help shape the game. At the Star Trek Scene It? website (sceneitstartrek.com) fans can submit their own trivia questions in the ‘Final Frontier Challenge.’ The winning questions will be included in the game, and the name and hometown of the fans will appear on the trivia card–pretty cool. So for all those who thought the trivia questions were too easy, now is your time to stump the Trekkies.
As an added bonus, there are prizes to be won for 16 fans (USA only) who submit their trivia question online or by snail mail (click here for the official rules). The prizes are awarded after a random drawing of eligible entries. The Grand Prize is a DVD collection of all six television shows and the 10 motion pictures, a copy of the DVD game, and a Tyco R/C Flying Enterprise. Fifteen first prize winners get the DVD game and the Radio Controlled Enterprise.
Trek joining Disney & Bond
The Scene It? game is good news for Star Trek, firstly because a big licensee such as Mattel is expressing interest in Star Trek, and secondly because Scene It? games are only from what are considered big franchises. For example, Star Trek will be joining James Bond, Disney, Marvel Comics, and Harry Potter. The Star Trek Scene It? Deluxe DVD game will feature questions from all versions of Star Trek (including non-video questions from the 2009 feature film).
The Scene It? game joins a growing list of ‘classic’ and movie tie-in Star Trek products to be available this Spring as the film nears its release. Besides 20Q and Scene It?, Mattel is releasing its Tyco Radio Controlled Star Trek ships and also a collectors Barbie set tied to the Star Trek feature film. In addition to Mattel, Playmates Toys will also have action figures and toys based on the film. The next year is a collector’s dream for Star Trek.
