Star Trek

to clarify...

                                                                                                                    1.28.10 (nyc)

i have been inundated with questions and confusion about a comment i made during an interview with wired - about the new atari star trek online game - in which i said i am stepping away from trek for the next two years.  obviously i will be a part of any upcoming films... reprising my role as spock.  what i meant was that in the meantime i won't be making any public appearances related to the franchise - or doing any more auxiliary projects pertaining to the trek universe.  i will be focusing my efforts on other projects and preparing to shoot the next film - which will be released in june of 2012... two years from now.  hence the no trek for two years remark.  worry not trekkers.  it was a misunderstanding of context.  i am not spock.  but i am spock.  all at the same time.

S. N. Love it...


all is settled...

it has been a while.  travels have brought me home.  took a few days of relative solitude to let things breathe.  the last leg of the trip was absolutely raucous and exhausting.  mostly because all of us realized the imminent conclusion of such an epic adventure and wanted to make the most of it.  went back and forth between la and new york a few times.  then touched down in tokyo for a blink before coming home and seeking some desert revelation.  highlight of the trips to nyc?  unsurprisingly...  SNL.  such a mindblowing convergence of childhood dreams and creative freedom.  i mean - come on.  gilda radner?!  kevin nealon!  jan hooks & phil hartman!!!  the history of genius and hilarity and instinct.  the possibility of it all.  the cast and writers could not have been more generous or welcoming.  justin timberlake slaughtered it.  and all i can say is: SNL knows how to throw an after party.  and after after party.  suffice it to say i boarded my 8:30 sunday morning flight to tokyo with literally no sleep.  not being hyperbolic.  but it all evened out.  in the end - and i welcome all of your support in this matter - the simple fact remains: i must host saturday night live imminently.  we're working on it.  to be sure.  tokyo was a brief delight.  whet my appetite more than anything.  there was karaoke until the wee hours after the premiere.  to be sure.  john cho definitely gave the most rousing rendition of lionel ritchie's hello that i have ever heard.  to be sure.  that boy can sing.  go see his band in la sometime.  all told... we all went for it.  all around.  and now the movie's out.  official travel has concluded.  for the most part i have switched into life mode again.  i will likely be laying low the next couple weeks to solidify next steps and gather momentum before the door.  a sincere and direct thank you to all of my fans who have followed my exploits and supported our travels and adventures.  glad to have been able to share some of it with you since you are ultimately the reason that it's possible.  thanks for seeing the film in such impressive numbers and please keep spreading the word.  we'll keep information and ideas flowing through.  and i will most certainly check in again soon.  in the meantime.  some photos.  and please don't miss the merkin interview.  seriously.  my favorite interview from the entire press tour.  to be sure.  be well all.  see you soon.  zq.

ZQ NARRATES: the new "STAR TREK" Audiobook

Tomorrow, Simon & Schuster releases the Zachary Quinto audiobook of the "STAR TREK" movie novel adaptation written by Alan Dean Foster, based on Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman's screenplay. Zachary narrates the entire 8.5 hour book and voices all of the characters, which includes parts of the story that are not in the movie. Go to the ZQ STORE to buy your copy. 

John Tenuto reviewed Zachary's narration on - here is an excerpt of that REVIEW:

"The Narration by Zachary Quinto

I cannot offer enough accolades to Zachary Quinto's narration. He is simply the best audio book narrator in the history of Star Trek, and that is saying quite a great deal considering the formidable and venerable talents of George Takei and James Doohan. Yet, Quinto shows all his acting abilities in the audio adaptation and he has a thoughtful style as narrator. He performs Scotty and Chekov flawlessly (watch out Anton Yelchin!). He also has a subtly in his voice while performing Kirk that is very good and displays the assuredness of the character without being a parody. One of the fun things about listening to audio books is to hear how various narrators act out characters of the opposite sex (think William Shatner in "Turnabout Intruder"). Quinto does very good at hinting at the femininity of characters without lisping to exaggerations or stereotypical imitations. In the film, Eric Bana uses several voices as he performs Nero (compare his voices when welcoming back Spock with talking to Pike). Quinto does a very good job of staying consistent and sounding like Bana. Quinto is a true master of various accents.

As the generic narrator, Quinto also displays excellent qualities. His tonation and energy help maintain interest during the 8.5 hours of the audio book. His abilities as narrator and character actor are especially seen in the scenes on the USS Kelvin. With only his voice (no sound effects or music accompany his reading of the text), Quinto is able to convey all the sadness and tragedy of those moments. In fact, he is so good that as a father and fan, I am not embarrassed to say there were tears in my eyes while listening to Quinto's heartbreaking reading of the scenes between Winona and George Kirk. That he is able to engender this kind of emotion in an audio book speaks volumes about Quinto's talent."

homeward bound...


truth be told...

the "...ward bound" part happened on tuesday.  it is 6:30 in the morning in los angeles.  i have been back for two days now.  i have done a relatively decent job of escaping the clenches of jetlag.  i go to bed at a normal hour.  and wake up early.  now i know how most of the world does it.  it's good to be home for a brief time.  a couple of days before everything swirls up again.  it's hard to believe after all we experienced abroad - that there are still three more weeks before all is said and done.  we jump into the domestic press leg starting tomorrow.  press conferences.  interviews.  talk shows.  then on to tokyo.  that part is very exciting - as i have never been to that part of the world.  my last post was in paris.  and then from there things went into a kind of warp mode (no pun intended).  it went a little something like this:  two days of press in paris and then wednesday evening to berlin.  arrive at 8:30pm.  whisked to group dinner.  after dinner hung with friends who live in the city.  in bed by 2:00am.  next morning.  press begins at 9:00am and goes all day.  finish at 5:00pm.  have 45 minutes to shower and change for the berlin premiere.  cars pick us up at the hotel at 5:45pm.  get to carpet by 6ish.  an hour and twenty minutes of interviews and photos and signing.  run upstairs.  time for one glass of champagne to celebrate the impressive turn out at the sony center at postdamer platz.  ushered through the back corridors to the side door of the enormous theater.  introduced on stage to wish the audience an enjoyable experience.  ushered back out the side door.  back through the corridors to our waiting cars.  driven directly to airport where we board the jet and fly immediately to madrid.  arrive madrid at 11:30pm.  get to hotel by midnight and convene in the hotel bar for a nightcap and a check-in with my fellow travelers.  in bed by 2:00am.  next morning.  press begins at 8:30am.  at lunch time i make arrangements to get raced to reina sofia to see picasso's masterpiece guernica. by the time we get to the museum - we have 15 staggering minutes - to contemplate this breathtaking piece - before we have to leave to get back for the second half of the day.  we make it on time.  more translated press.  finish press day at 4:30pm.  we are in our cars by 5:00pm on our way to the airport where we board the jet again for london.  arrive in london at 7:30pm.  now we have two days off in london.  and i just want days off.  didn't make the time to update my adventures - i was too busy having them.  monday in london was mad press and monday night the insane premiere and party.  ended on a high note.  and headed back to la on tuesday afternoon.  so here we are.  that pretty much brings us up to speed.  some pictures below.  nothing earthshattering.  just a sense of where we've been.  more to come with regard to where we're going...

brother and our driver markus at my friend's flat in berlin.  it's always good to make friends with the drivers.  they know everything...

on the way back to my berlin hotel room.  getting artsy in the elevator...

a brief moment of connection with my berlin friends who came to the premiere.  i had time to hug them all before getting ushered off...

in madrid the hotel used to be a duchess' villa.  this was the study.  now the restaurant.

sitting in the cockpit during take off from madrid to london.  one of the many perks of flying private...

in claridge's hotel - one of my favorites - the view from the top of our floor's staircase...

after all - a weary traveler waiting for the final leg to bring him home...

it ends the same way it begins.  always...

REVIEW: Variety Loves "STAR TREK"

Todd McCarthy's fantastic review of STAR TREK is in Variety magazine today.

Quote on film: "Blasting onto the screen at warp speed and remaining there for two hours, the new and improved "Star Trek" will transport fans to sci-fi nirvana.... Paramount won't need any economic stimulus package with all the money it'll rake in with this one globally, and a follow-up won't arrive soon enough."

why i want to live in paris (in three photos and two videos)...


two years ago today - i put myself on tape to play the role of spock.  this was on the wall of the bar where we went last night.  coincidence?  i don't believe in coincidence. so this first photo doesn't count as one of the three.  i just thought it was a crazy little anniversary present from the universe...

kuwait a minute... (photos & now VIDEO)


in the middle (east).

one of the most fascinating and remote destinations on the whole trip is with out a doubt kuwait.  we travelled almost 19 hours from new zealand through dubai to get there and then spent less than a day before heading another 9 hours to paris.  i have never been so simultaneously exhausted and exhilarated in my whole life.  as soon as we arrived in the middle east - the energy shifted for me.  it exists in such stark juxtaposition to the nature of our trip and the essence of our culture.  to be in the region that engenders so much passion and misunderstanding throughout the rest of the world was so unique and illuminating.  we all felt it immediately.  it took a while to get into the country - even with guides and handlers.  after so much time on planes it required a specific kind of patience in the hour and a half we stood at the processing desk waiting for all of our visas to clear.  eventually they did - and we were escorted by military liaisons and local police via passenger bus (with curtains that we were not allowed to open due to forced protection) to a hotel where we had less than an hour to get ready for our trip to camp arifjan - the biggest and central u.s. military base in the theater of the middle eastern operations.  once there we were greeted by the general and introduced to the rules and our surroundings.  although photos were limited on the base while outside - it is an absolutely massive place.  fences behind which hundreds of tanks sit idle.  huge transport vehicles and humvees everywhere.  and desert as far as the eye can see.  it was apparent immediately how genuinely excited the troops were to have us.  as trivial as what we do can seem in the face of the sacrifices they and their families are making - it was deeply humbling to hear how important our work can be to them.  one soldier told me that she would ration her episodes of heroes so she could make the experience last longer during her active tour in iraq.  the idea of their need to escape from the relentless intensity of their responsibilities and the associated pressure actually put the contribution of our work in a new kind of perspective.  i felt so grateful to share time with them and to share the movie with them.  they were excited and responsive and it was an all around incredible part of the journey.  after we introduced the screening at arifjan - we split into groups and boarded two military blackhawk helicopters for a 30 minute flight to camp lsa which is the base from which all troops leave to enter active duty in all parts of the middle eastern war.  it is also the base through which they pass at the end of their tours and before and after departure for r&r trips.  in other words - it is the gateway to the entire war - and as such had a much deeper and more resonant energy for all of us.  there we sat and signed with troops who were literally waiting to be called on to c130 planes that would take them to the frontlines in iraq and afghanistan.  as military flights do not run on a specific schedule like commercial airlines - the troops have to congregate in this huge hall and wait there for anywhere from an hour to an entire day or more before they are deployed.  while we were there - a group of soldiers were called to their planes and left immediately for points unknown to us.  that was sobering to say the least.  from there it was back on to the blackhawks and arifjan where we boarded the bus to return to kuwait city - and the airport for our trip to europe.  a couple words about blackhawks... HOLY SHIT!  i don't even know how to describe the experience.  first of all - we flew with the doors open.  150 miles per hour.  our pilots were the officers that fly the three and four star generals all throughout the middle eastern theater.  so essentially they are the best of the best.  soaring over the open desert above bedouin camps and camels and burning oil valves and just desert and desert and desert.  it was arguably one of the most incredible experiences i have ever had in my life.  absolutely staggering and hard to wrap my mind around on so many levels.  pictures could not begin to do it justice.  but they will have to suffice.  it was definitely good to head out of there - but the part of the trip i think we were all most curious and excited about most certainly didn't disappoint.  now on to the city of lights... in stark contrast - but no less vivid.  more to come...

our military escort leads the way.

blackhawk up... 

auckland adventures...



two down.  what can i say about new zealand... other than i wish we could have stayed much longer.  the premiere went really well.  people were excited - but not frenzied.  i have noticed a kind of ease about the people in this part of the world.  understandable when you consider the natural beauty that surrounds them.  the kind of chaotic hollywood experience of flash and celebrity and spectacle doesn't quite have the same effect.  and i prefer it.  but what they do have is a tremendous spirit of adventure.  something i did not know is that bungee jumping was invented in auckland.  and apparently the saying goes - you can't leave auckland without jumping off of something.  so when in rome... or auckland.  the day after the premiere elder quinto and i - along with our intrepid paramount publicist angharad - took a leap off of the tallest building in the southern hemisphere.  it's called the sky jump.  and it is a controlled descent - but a descent nonetheless - of 630 feet in 11 seconds.  working on some video to post.  but for now you'll have to take my word for the fact that it was one of the scariest and exhilarating experiences i have had in a very long time.  then - after that adventure - we were treated to a helicopter ride over auckland which landed us at te whau vineyard - one of the most exquisite restaurants in the city.  overlooking the water and with stunning views all around - the lot of us had an incredible lunch before beginning our epic journey to the next leg of the trip.  the middle eastern leg.  definitely not sure what to expect of that.  but will be excited to see how it all unfolds.  some pictures of the auckland fun.  until next time...

this is a pre-premiere reception at the top of sky tower.  by the end of the next morning i will have jumped from this height...

Auckland Interview - Part 2

i can't believe...


... i'm still awake.

just got into my hotel room in auckland after a couple of incredible days in sydney.  the world premiere was a thrill.  could the lit up sydney opera house look any more like the starfleet insignia?!  even in the face of some trekker upheaval - it seems obvious why the world premiere was held there.  and the austin sneak premiere feels like a fair exchange - with spock #1 on hand for the festivities.  we are in new zealand for a couple of days now - then on to kuwait.  most of us are looking forward to that leg of the trip above everything else.  the troops.  the movie.  a good combination.  i am going to fall asleep imminently.  here are some pics from our travels today.  a lot happening.  a lot to look forward to.  more to come... as usual.

preparations underway...


down (under) day.

first day in sydney.  spent it walking about and absorbing this phenomenal city.  also reconnected with an old friend who lives here - and whom i haven't seen in over five years.  that was a blast.  tomorrow won't be so leisurely - but probably infinitely more exhilarating.

if you look very closely on the steps of the opera house - you can just make out the beginnings of the red carpet.  this is from the roof of our hotel.

New STAR TREK - TV Spot # 5

my first post


and so it is underway.

the future may begin may 8th for the rest of the world.  but tonight it begins for us.  the adventure.  the circus.  the maelstrom.  almost two years to the day after first putting myself on tape to play the role of spock - i find myself sitting in the airport lounge with the gang - waiting to board the qantas flight that will ultimately change all of our lives.  i've never been to australia - and was laughing earlier that my first experience of sydney will basically be every postcard i have ever seen of the city.  the premiere is at the opera house (the first film ever to premiere in the actual concert hall there) - which is kind of  unfathomable to begin with.  almost 1700 aussies will join us tuesday night for the world premiere of the movie.  needless to say - we are all looking forward to it.  more to come...  

zq.  taking it all in.
