If you want sci-fi fans to open their wallets for a good cause, a walk-on role in the new Star Trek movie might arguably be the best incentive ever.

The entire cast of the upcoming Star Trek Beyond, including new addition Idris Elba as the film’s Big Bad, got together to stroll around the set of the Enterprise to tell fans all about their favorite charities. Paramount Pictures, along with producer J.J. Abrams, have teamed up with the charity platform Omaze to raise money for nine charities. A $10 donation will get you in the running to win a trip to the set to hang out with the cast, plus a walk-on role in the movie.

The list of charities were selected by stars Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana, John Cho, Idris Elba, Simon Pegg, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin and Susan Nimoy on behalf of her late husband Leonard. Charities include Brave Beginnings, Camp Sunshine, Direct Relief International, Heaven Homes, KidsCan, Koreatown Youth & Community Center, Make-A-Wish, Time Is Precious and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
