Last December, a link was hidden in the first Star Trek Into Darkness teaser trailer. It lead us to AreYouthe1701.com, to sign up for what many hoped would be a huge campaign centered on the USS Enterprise (1701 is the ship’s registration number), turned out to be a dud. Sitting unchanged for nearly 5 months, the site finally went live today. So just what is Are You The 1701? Find out after the jump!
The first thing you’ll notice when you enter the site is that it has been redesigned. You still see the question “Are You The 1701?”, but now ‘the 1701’ is a hashtag (#The1701). Paramount has set this up as a contest using social networking site Instagram and Vine. Digging through the official rules, there will be 1701 winners and each will receive a prize with an ARV (Approximate Retail Value) of $2.00. Exactly what that prize is remains to be seen, but the contest ends on Monday, April 29th, so hurry and get those entries in!
