ON THE COVER SHOOT: I really liked the photographer [Nino Muñoz]. I liked the Avedonian vibe. I’m really way into the super contrasty black and white, how then it becomes purely about architecture of the shot. I liked especially the ones where he would frame me on the right and there’d be this swath of white, and I’m crouched down in the middle, from which you could kind of make out the details of my eyes and my arms.
ADJECTIVES HE’D LIKE TO BAN FROM ARTICLES WRITTEN ABOUT HIM: Arrogant. Generic.
ON HIS BIGGEST FLAWS: [Scoffing laugh.] I mean, where to begin? Where to begin? I have plenty of them, let’s just say that.
ON WHOSE LIFE HE’D LIKE TO HAVE IN 10 YEARS: I want to have mine. To live an interesting and joyful life. It’s kind of a simple statement. I’m very aware, having passed 30—time is of the essence, it really is, and we do get one shot, and I want to embrace and eat up every fucking moment of it. And—why not? We live in a great country, for the most part. We live in a beautiful city. We’re relatively healthy. We have access to wonderful culture. We have—for the time being, at least—freedom of expression and thought and idea. And it’s like, my God, man, this is not a bad place to live. Ideas, learn, knowledge, you know—to constantly grow.

“We do a lot of beaming in this film,” says Saldana who plays the young Uhura, in love with Zachary Quinto’s Spock. In one key scene, she must beam herself somewhere to save his Vulcan behind.
“All the ‘beam me up Scotty’ stuff is really super funny,” she says. “They can hardly ever use the first or second take.
“I’ll start laughing. Chris Pine will laugh. Zach laughs. Even [director] J.J. Abrams will burst into laughing now and then because you’re standing there wearing the costume, perfectly still, and you have to imagine your every molecule being sent into space.
“This movie goes deeper. It’s richer. We’re really tested in a way that I don’t think the audience will see coming,” says Chris Pine, who plays James T. Kirk. The captain finally is at the helm of the Enterprise but can he keep the commando seat? Or will his brash personality and refusal to follow the rules come and bite him in his Spandex?
“Kirk is still Kirk,” Pine says. “He’s brash. He loves the ladies of all species and he has a hard time listening to authority, which is a plus and a minus in his world.”
A case in point on the “Trek” set was the day she dared to sit in the Captain Kirk chair.
“The set is bigger now. Fancier. Our budget was healthier. The captain’s chair was even better.
“I think all of us sat in the captain’s chair every now and then. Then Chris would walk across the bridge and say, ‘Can you please get out of my chair?’ ”
