The Emotional New "Star Trek Beyond" Trailer Hints That Rihanna Might Be A Trekkie

At the very least she provided the music.

There's a new Star Trek Beyond trailer, you guys, and Rihanna has made it very emotional.

Her new single, "Sledgehammer," is featured all up in it, and it's the perfect accompaniment to what's promising to be a Star Trek movie more contemplative and soaring than the two that came before it.

If you saw 2009's Star Trek, you may recall that it featured a pre-Thor Chris Hemsworth as dad to a wee James Tiberius Kirk.

Very, very wee — we only see Hemsworth in the scene in which a pre-Once Upon a Time Jennifer Morrison is giving birth to lil' Jimmy. Then Papa Kirk dies, big-time.

And these emotions happen to the tune of Rihanna's new single, as they should. And the cover art makes her look like a beautiful goth space princess.

Which is pretty much the Rihanna of our dreams (and the Rihanna she's always been).
