LAS VEGAS (AP) – Here’s a reason to go back and look closely at the last “Star Trek” movie directed by J.J. Abrams.

Advance the film frame by frame during a scene showing space junk and you might notice R2D2 hiding there. That revelation is as close as Abrams came to talking about “Star Wars” at a video game conference in Las Vegas.

Abrams will be directing the next installment of the “Star Wars” franchise.
