Pine on fan reactions:
I am not sure if they are going to embrace it or not. The heat behind it I feel. I’ve seen posts about it going both ways. People are either excited about it or giving it the middle finger already. It’ll be what it’ll be and people will like it or they wont. I’m really proud of it from what I’ve seen I think we did a great job.
Pine on what he thought of the design of the Enterprise sets
I think when you get the opportunity to work on something with that much money is extraordinary because you get the best of the best of the best. You have the best production designers, you have the best actors working along beside you, you have one of the best directors in Hollywood today, you have a costume team that is out of control. So it is like being a kid and being given everything at your fingertips. When you first saw the bridge — and I wasn’t a fan when I was growing up so it wasn’t as sacrosanct as it was to many others — but you kind of have an out of body experience. It is pretty awesome to get to do what you get to do.
