What do Star Trek and Rock Band have in common?

When you think Star Trek, do you also think Rock Band?

Me either, but that doesn't matter one whit to the folks at Electronic Arts and Paramount, who are reaching out to us videogame and sci-fi dorks wherever they can find us! So later this month, as the release of the new Star Trek movie draws nearer, look for a special challenge when you boot up Rock Band 2:

Beginning on April 20, Rock Band 2 owners can compete in the Star Trek Ultimate Battle contest through the game's online Battle of the Bands mode. The contest, which runs through April 27, pits bands of three to four against one another in a competition for the highest score. The winning band will be awarded with a private screening of Star Trek in their hometown. MTV Games will also give away prize packs with Star Trek and Rock Band merchandise to 20 randomly selected participants.
