The final entry in the Star Trek Beyond promo campaign for the Omaze charity project has arrived, and it’s a fond farewell to a legend.

Hosted by Zachary Quinto, the featurette finds the cast and crew of Star Trek Beyond honoring the legacy of the late Leonard Nimoy and the impact he made in the decades he played Spock. In a move Nimoy would certainly be proud of, the campaign spotlights one of Nimoy’s favorite charities: St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The Omaze campaign has the Star Trek Beyond team working with the charity group to raise money and awareness for several different charities. For a $10 donation, fans are entered to win a grand prize walk-on role in Star Trek Beyond, and each week they are randomly selecting an additional winner to visit the set, hang with the cast and watch the sequel as it's made.

Even though Nimoy can’t be there, it’s nice to see the cast and crew include his favorite charity. If nothing else, he’s there in spirit. LLAP.
