It’s official: Spock is the biggest freak aboard the Starship Enterprise.
Zachary Quinto channels his inner Missy Elliott for a killer rendition of the 2001 jam “Get Ur Freak On” during a special one-hour Star Trek edition of Spike TV’s Lip Sync Battle (Thursday, 9/8c). No expense is spared — from the hair to the makeup to the timeless bedazzled denim — in Quinto’s pursuit of the perfect Missy impersonation, and as you can see, it’s well worth the effort.
Quinto’s performance is going to be tough to beat, but if anyone’s got what it takes to dethrone a hip-hop queen, it’s Quinto’s competitor (and Star Trek co-star) Zoe Saldana. Though we only see her for a few brief seconds in this preview video, we know she literally has TLC’s Chilli and T-Boz in her corner, so we have a feeling she’ll be just fine.
