Idris Elba is getting ready to live long and prosper.

PEOPLE has an exclusive photo of the actor with the cast of Star Trek Beyond, the action-packed film set to rocket into theaters in 2016.

Elba's intergalactic costars include Chris Pine, Zoë Saldana, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, John Cho and Simon Pegg.

Pegg – both a screenwriter of and an actor in the film – revealed in April that he had penned a role for Elba.



Elba, Pine, Saldana, Pinto and the gang are joining forces with Omaze to support a variety of worthy charities. As announced in an otherworldly YouTube video featuring the cast, fans who donate $10 or more to Omaze.com/StarTrek will be eligible to win a trip to Vancouver and a walk-on role in the film. Six additional winners will also visit the set and meet the cast.

The proceeds will benefit organizations that the stars have selected: Heaven Homes (Elba), Make-A-Wish (Pine), Brave Beginnings (Saldana), Direct Relief International (Quinto), KidsCan (Urban), Camp Sunshine (Yelchin), Koreatown Youth & Community Center (Cho) and Time Is Precious (Pegg).

As Pine says playfully in the video, "Idris, glad you could join us."
