This news only adds to Rihanna’s Star Trek cred, as last month, we first reported that she collaborated with Dior to create sunglasses inspired by LeVar Burton’s TNG character Geordi La Forge.

Rihanna was also included, amongst several other celebrities, in a video montage during the Star Trek Beyond fan event at Paramount a few weeks ago, discussing what Star Trek means to her (at the 0:39 mark).


Directed by Justin Lin, written by Simon Pegg, Doug Jung, Roberto Orci, John D. Payne and Patrick McCay, Star Trek Beyond stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, John Cho, Anton Yelchin, Idris Elba and Sofia Boutella. The film is scheduled to hit theaters on July 22 after premiering during San Diego Comic-Con on July 20.
