Oh my Spock.

Star Trek Beyond star Zachary Quinto goes above and beyond during his performance on this week's Lip Sync Battle, choosing to channel Missy Elliott via her 2001 hit, "Get Ur Freak On."

As you can see in the preview below, Quinto rocks an altered hairstyle, lipstick, and a bejeweled denim jacket to pay homage to the classic hip-hop track, and people can't even handle it.

Last month, ET's Ashley Crossan caught up with the stars of the film at the Star Trek 50th Anniversary event, where co-star Chris Pine revealed that Quinto's routine could be benefiting from some well-rehearsed choreography.

"Zach has been thinking about this... This is no B.S.," Pine shared. "Zach may have hired a choreographer."

"I'm not taking it lightly," Quinto added. "I know Zoe is a fierce competitor. She's also an enormously talented performer and dancer especially, which is not my strong suit, so I'm hoping to throw it down."

Well, game on!
