Damn you April Fool's Day, I actually thought this was a joke at first. But now, MTV and Paramount are really teaming up to cross-promote Star Trek with Rock Band.
Beginning today, gamers can register for a 15-day sweepstakes that will give away 500 free Rock Band Music Store downloads each day from April 7 through April 21 on Xbox Live Marketplace and the Playstation Store.
The companies are also kicking off a Star Trek Battle of the Bands . The band with the highest score will win a Star Trek hometown movie screening for their band and their friends. Also, 20 randomly selected players will win a Star Trek Rock Band prize pack which includes Star Trek and Rock Band gear.
Finally, on April 27, the two are hosting a avatar creation contest, with fans making futuristic avatars in-game and exporting them to RockBand.com for Harmonix and the community to judge. The winner will be chosen on May 11 and win a prize pack that includes "top of the line" Rock Band game accessories.
