Who knew Spock could rap?

In a sneak peek at Thursday’s Lip Sync Battle, Zachary Quinto busts out beats – and a pretty fly wig – to channel Missy Elliott.

The Star Trek Beyond actor, 39, also dons a bedazzled jean vest, a pair of large hoop earrings, a face full of makeup and an array of chains in order to get his “Freak on.”

Quinto isn’t the only one paying homage to Elliott’s hits – Chrissy Teigen showed up ready to party in a “Supa Dupa Fly” suit.

“It’s pretty high-intensity, a lot of production elements, basically a live performance that I’ve had about two days to rehearse for, with a 700-person audience,” Quinto previously told Entertainment Weekly of his battle against Trek costar Zoe Saldana. “It’s unlike anything I’ve done, which is why I wanted to do it, but I feel like I’m going to bring it.”

Lip Sync Battle airs Thursdays (10 p.m. ET) on Spike.
