We are now inside the last month of waiting for the new Star Trek movie (except for a lucky few who have or will attend one of those cool premiere events). As for the rest of Trekdom, you can still feast on Star Trek tidbits and today’s menu has more from the red carpet in Sydney, Chris Pine talking about bringing Trek to the troops, Zoe Saldana looking yummy, and more.
More Sydney Red carpet
Moviebeat UK has a video of actor comments from the red carpet at the Sydney premiere, spliced with the recently revealed clips from the film.
Pine talks Star Trek to the Troops and sequels
Chris Pine talked to E at ShoWest last week about the Star Trek world tour, revealing there will be a stop in Kuwait "to show the the troops the film." He also talked about being ready for a sequel.
Zoe’s skirt kept getting shorter
Esquire Magazine has a new feature on Zoe Saldana, with pictures and an interview with the new Uhura. Here is an excerpt where the actress talks about what kind of guys she likes.
ESQ: What about actors?
ZS: Nooooo. Too much "Me, me, me." I keep things separate. Work is work. There’s nothing better than meeting a handsome geek.
ESQ: That’s in the official Star Trek PR handbook.
ZS: I’ve developed a real respect for Trekkies.
ESQ: Talk to me after your first Comic-Con.
ZS: I’ve already had a [fan] come up to the door of my house. And I had a driver for another movie who brought all of his Star Trek memorabilia with him. He opened the trunk and there was this shrine. He had stacks of pictures he wanted me to sign. He ended up being the nicest guy, but it definitely freaked me out at first.
ESQ: That miniskirted uniform has a weird effect on men.
ZS: During the shoot it kept getting shorter and shorter.

I’ll be in my bunk…again
Kirk and Spock relax
Not all the eye candy is for the boys. There is a new photo shoot of Chris Pine and Zachary Quntio from the Australia premiere, with the actors striking those ‘who us? handsome?’ kind of poses. See the full set at zach-quinto.com.
Yo, go Trek Yourself!
