Well, I hunted and hunted for images of R2D2 in Star Trek and I scoured the web for an image of it. All the images I found online all are wrong. Like the one below (which of course an image of the Enterprise shuttle)
As you can see, R2D2 is floating through the debris field in a shot where the director obviously figured out that the audience attention would of course be on the giant Romulan ship, while completely ignoring this little robot floating gently to the left of the screen.
But here he is! Undeniable proof that R2D2 somehow was transported through space and time in order to witness the destruction of Vulcan.
I guess the chances are that he was then sucked into the black hole and sent far far away with all the debris from Vulcan...
*Update, although I found this a while back, it was the good folks over at Gizmodo who finally received confirmation from a source at ILM that this is the real deal. (thanks for the linkback!)
