Zach hasn’t seen the film and says he is actually enjoying this period before the film is released, having the experience still be something personal. He notes he was a ‘minimal’ fan before doing the movie, but was "always a fan of Spock." Quinto also talks about the future of Heroes.

MORE PINE ON KIRK & STAR TREK
Chris Pine is also quoted in a new article at AP previewing 2009 movies. Pine explains the setting of the film and discusses the relationship with Spock and Kirk.
For Kirk and Spock, it’s charting their lives to a small extent from boyhood and their first encounter, which is a bit contentious, to kind of the beginning of the relationship we all know…They are at odds at first. The conflict of the relationship actually gives Zachary a couple moments where he’s not as controlled and rational as Mr. Nimoy’s character was. He has a couple of outbursts that aren’t exactly the classic Spock.
