One of the biggest events in the Star Trek movie was the destruction of Vulcan and this has got Star Trek’s new Spock Zachary Quinto wondering what his character may be doing to help the remaining Vulcan race in the sequel.
Quinto thinks Spock wants to rebuild the Vulcan race
The Star Trek stars still haven’t seen a script for the sequel, but that doesn’t stop them from imagining what they may be up to once the film gets going. Recently Zoe Saldana said that she was hoping for Uhura take her relationship with Spock to the next level and "hook up." And in a new interview Zachary Quinto appears to be on the same page, however he (fittingly) uses somewhat more academic terminology:
Where do you think your character is in the second film, where do you think his character journey is going?
I wonder about that. I would imagine (this is just speculative), his planet’s been destroyed, he feels a real imperative to rebuild his race. But he’s in love with a human. There’s probably some potential conflict in that dynamic, I would not be surprised, and I would be intrigued and excited by that if that were the case. Again, I have such implicit trust in all of those guys: Damon, Bob and Alex, and J.J. I feel like they’re going to take us where we need to go. And we’re going to follow them whole-heartedly.
Do you think they’ll keep the romance story alive with you, and do you want them to?
I do think [so]. I don’t see how they could just drop it. It may be fraught, I don’t know!
Where is Spock now? He’s one of the last few Vulcans
He’s not the only Vulcan, I think I said, "Of my planet’s nearly 6 billion inhabitants, approximately 10,000 have survived." He’s not the only one. But the odds aren’t great. He has a bit of a cultural imperative to [help].
Quinto thinks Spock Spock has a "cultural imperitive" to help keep the Vulan race going…
