“Star Trek has been a part of my life since I was a little girl,” Rihanna said. “My dad is really the one who introduced me to Star Trek. It just took me one episode to fall in love with this world that I couldn’t understand but I felt like I could relate to."

She adds the franchise is a global phenomenon and was honored to be a part of it. No, seriously, her enthusiasm feels honest.

“It wasn’t just doing another song for any random film," she continued. "I love Star Trek!”
