The cast and crew of "Star Trek Beyond" are channeling their inner Leonard Nimoys to encourage "Star Trek" fans to live long and donate.

In the final week of the -- which is raising money for nine charities picked by the cast and crew -- Zachary Quinto and the rest of his Starship Enterprise crewmates posted a video tribute to Leonard Nimoy, who died in February.

The clip, which you can watch below, features Quinto talking about how great a guy Nimoy was and the impact he had on the crew and "Star Trek" fans around the world. It also shows some of the cast and crew's favorite Nimoy moments from his work on previous "Star Trek" movies.

The clip goes on to promote a charity near and dear to Nimoy -- St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, which is one of the nine beneficiaries of the Omaze campaign. In addition to the satisfaction that comes with supporting a worthy cause, the campaign will give one "Star Trek" fan the chance to be in the next film in the series, "Star Trek Beyond."

If you'd like to be that fan, you have one week left to donate at least $10 (about £6, AU $14) to the campaign's nine charities and earn your chance to boldly go where no fan has gone before by winning a walk-on role in the "Star Trek Beyond" movie. You can learn more about the campaign and donate at the Omaze page.

"Star Trek Beyond" will premiere in theaters in the US and UK on July 8, 2016. An Australian release date is not available at this time.
