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).
