Bakula spoke to 411Mania about various topics, including Star Trek, here are some excerpts:

Al Norton: People who have played Captains on Star Trek are in an elite club so I am curious if you saw the movie last summer and if so, what did you think of the job Chris Pine did?

Scott Bakula: I saw the movie last summer and thought he was fantastic. I though the movie was fantastic, I thought they did an incredible job of creating a new franchise for the studio. I thought it was great.

Al Norton: When you go to see the movie do you still feel a part of the whole ongoing Star Trek saga?

Scott Bakula: I know it probably seems goofy but yes. You’re part of the lore and history of this 45 year or so legacy. I don’t think there’ll ever be anything like it again and I have to say I’m honored to have been a part of it.
