What more could a Trekkie ask for than an interview with Kirk and Spock at the same time. Well that is exactly what happens in episode four of Women Talk Sci Fi. There are three things which spring to mind when listening to Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto. Their dedication to their craft, the respect they have for those that have come before them and their great sense of humour. Just like J.J. Abrams neither of these great actors claims to have been Trekkies when they accepted their new identities. It seems to be a recurring theme that may be distressing for many Star Trek fans, however they also share something else in common that alleviates that concern. That is a respect for both the characters they are playing and the fans that have come to love Star Trek. Without that respect a lot of damage could have been done to the beloved Star Trek franchise. That respect coupled with not being encumbered by expectations allows them to breathe new life into Star Trek. The humour that is on display in the interview is another promising glimpse into the new movie. Star Trek was always at its best when it didn't take itself too seriously and had a good laugh at its own expense. J.J. Abrams certainly seems to have surrounded himself with a group of actors who desperately want to bring something of themselves to their characters whilst trying to remain true to the originals. This is an attitude that cannot be missed when listening to Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto talk about their experiences making this movie. It's not all serious talk though, two actors certainly have a few interesting stories to tell. So join Gerri, Eugenia and guest presenter Marlene with their round table interview with Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto.
