Zoe Saldana Eager To Come Back to Star Trek In Sequel; Shooting In Mid January

Zoe Saldana talked to Access Hollywood about the upcoming Star Trek sequel Monday night at the Glamour Reel Moments premiere in LA.

Although Saldana admitted a script hasn’t been received yet, she says, “We’re very excited to read it and get back into space.” The film is set to begin filming in mid-January and will not be titled Star Trek 2.

Saldana, whose character Nyota Uhura was romantically involved with Spock (Zachary Quinto) in the original film, doesn’t know if the romance will pick up where it left off. She says “I’m really curious and I’m pretty sure that Zach is as well.”

I’ve never seen the first installment; I’ve never been a Star Trek fan, so I don’t care one way or the other. It seems like I’m in the minority though.

Are you excited? What do you think?

Yeah that prequel was the business. You didn’t have to be a Trekkie to get it. And that Uhura/Spock Vulcanized heat was a wonderful surprise…YESSSSS!!!!

I am sooo happy this is shooting. Zoe–YOU BETTA DO IT!!! Zoe is about to be the Shonda Rhimes and Beyonce of acting=ALWAYS GETTING WORK!!!

*Commencing celebratory buck dance*


I am not a Trekkie either, but the first film was actually good.


I hope they include Lady Gaga in the sequel as a singer with dark connections to the villains. With her futuristic music and style, she would fit right in.
I’d like to see Kirk, Spock and McCoy go undercover to a techno concert of hers on a distant planet which is raided by many henchmen who have a thunderous phaser fight with them.


• The Orion Syndicate as the villains
• Larger all-star cast as well as many cameos including by William Shatner
• More planets
• Larger space battles with more starships
• Kirk having better fighting skills
• Kirk having several human love interests played by Hollywood’s most beautiful young actresses
• No cut scenes
• The Star Trek theme music from the Insurrection end credits used at the end
