Briefly: We’ve been following the lackluster Star Trek Into Darkness Are You The 1701 campaign quite closely since it went live last week. The first “mission” was to submit pictures to Instagram and videos to Vine that were inspired by Star Trek or “the future.” 1701 fans were rewarded with a special advance screening of the domestic trailer rendered in anaglyph 3D. Now fans are asked to submit original 1701 artwork to Instagram. Just use hashtag #1701 when you post your art. If anything comes of this, we’ll let you know. Be sure to check out the rest of our Into Darkness coverage here!

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! [Read more...]
