Check out the entire interview with Zoe, and bits of Chris mixed in over at SUNTIMES.COM

“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?’ ”
