Did you know there’s a rusty 1958 quarter in the Star Trek Blu-Ray extras disc? Seriously!

I got the Blu-Ray of the recent Star Trek movie and finally got around to copying the digital version from the “extras” DVD to my iPhone.

While I was waiting for the authorized download from iTunes, I did some poking around in the directory structure of the “extras” DVD.

Showing the package contents, there’s a NCFOM.icns in the resources directory.

Star Trek Quarter 1

Open that NCFOM.icns with the mac’s quick preview and you’ll see…

Star Trek Quarter 2

Star Trek Quarter 2

A rusty 1958 quarter!

Opening it in preview showed the same thing.

Now that’s an odd thing to put in there! Maybe a checksum of some kind?
