While Star Trek didn’t have a presence at this year’s Comic-Con, one of the film’s leads most certainly did, since he also stars in a little TV show called Heroes.
So it was only fair that when MTV tracked Zachary Quinto down at the Con, they asked him all about his role in JJ Abrams’ reboot of the Trek franchise. Naturally, he couldn’t say too much (Abrams has a Constitution class starship in high orbit waiting to vaporise the cast if they blab any of the big secrets), but he did talk a little more about everyone’s favourite Vulcan science officer, played as an older character by Leonard Nimoy and in his young days by Quinto.
“This movie is about exploring the humanity of these people,” he told the site. “And with humanity invariably comes challenge, and comes pain. We don't shy away from that at all.

For somebody who's working so hard to stay so clearly separate, it's a collision course with himself in many ways.” Click the link for more.
