"We sat for two hours and talked, and it was as though I had known her [Zoe] all her life. I was so honored. I thought I was seeing myself — I knew I was in good hands. She just picked my brain. When I see her come on, that’s me and I’m living it. A little ways into the movie, I realized she had taken to heart what I said and became more reserved and tighter. I’m so proud of her. She took a role that was established and gave it life. Now I know who I was before I got on that ship for that first mission. It’s so exciting for me and rewarding. J.J. and she did me honor."
Nichelle Nichols (x)(x)

“I thought that [Zachary] made some choices that were wonderful surprises for me. We did not talk about specifics like, “do this or don’t do that.” We had conversations about the philosophy of the character, and the philosophy of Star Trek, and fan reactions to various aspects of Star Trek, but there were no specifics, it didn’t call for that. But watching Zach on film, I’m very proud of what he did. I think we have book-ended the character. He has created a Spock that comes before the Spock that I have created in the series. I play a Spock that is much much more resolved. And I think that is who I am actually today. So I think it works extremely well and I admire his talent.
Zachary’s choices in his performance often surprised me, in a very positive way. “I would never have thought to do that, and I think that’s a wonderful idea!” (..)And, these two [Zachary, Zoe] I think are wonderful together. It’s such a passionate and compassionate performance by Zoe that I was just so pleased to be a part of this movie, with all of you good people. “
Leonard Nimoy (x)
(source)









"Frankly, I was extremely jealous of his scenes with Zoe Saldana and I think it’s totally unfair that I never got to do that.
I will never forgive the writers and the director, for having put me in this position, to have to be watching that, rather than participating"

— Leonard Nimoy

Zoe Quotes
I try not to publicly announce the story line I’m in. In this situation, that whole relationship to me gave me the desire, as the newer generation, to completely fall in love with the character. After reading about the character, going to all the fan sites, I realized Spock and Uhura had more in common, in terms of their attraction, than any other characters in the script. She was an apt pupil, she only lives to work, she loves to study, she loves to be the best at what she does. And then all of a sudden there’s this mentor that is a couple years older than she is. He’s [inaudible] and pointy ears, and sexy. He always knows the answer. It just made more sense. It’s also the start of the connection they have. For him, being a Vulcan, always having this battle with his human side. To allow Uhura to see something not even his father was allowed to see, to see him fail, was absolutely priceless. And for Uhura to have only this man call her by her first name, I just thought it was kind of awesome.



Zachary Quotes
For me, the relationship provides a great source of levity in the film: between Kirk and Spock, between Kirk and Uhura. But between Spock and Uhura I think it provides a really interesting depth. Uhura essentially represents a canvas onto which Spock projects the emotions he can’t really otherwise express. And I think that dynamic for me was really rewarding as an actor. That scene that Zoe and I played in the elevator was definitely one of the most present experiences through shooting, and that has a great deal to do with Zoe and her emotional availability and openness. It was such a comforting, confined space that we were in, in that moment.




Title suggestions:
Zoe declared Zach a good kisser!
They could have cute, chocolate, pointy-eared babies.
Geeky love is hot!
Because Spock selfishly wants to spend more time with her.
Because he came back to her.
J.J. wants Uhura to kiss Spock more agressively!
She will always come to his rescue!
They're in the middle of all the action!
They're armed and ready for May!
They survived Pon Farr
Kirk ships them!




Past Titles:

#15 - He's not complete without her.
#14 - I was born to be with you in this space and time
#13 - because she has the King to his chess set
#12 - a grown-up romance between people who are flawed, but also intelligent and mature
#11 - She asked him out and he found it fascinating
#10 - Because "whether they are together or not..they will still be bonded forever"
#9 - Because he came back to her
#8 - All it took was 177 seconds of awesome
#7 - Because Vulcan is the language of love
#6 - because Uhura is the canvas on which Spock can paint all his emotions
#5 - because their kiss almost melted the transporter pad.
#4 - because Nichelle Nicholls approves
#3 - Because Leonard Nimoy approves
#2 - Because she's monitoring his frequencies.
#1 - Spock/Uhura

I'm starting to think any Spock romance has been toned down because they must think it's not viable to expect it working out on screen while the whole world knows that Zach is gay. I simply can't think of any other explanation for it. Spuhura was a hot explosion of sparkles in the first movie and compared to that, we have almost nothing, now or in the second movie.

I don't understand why though, Zach has incredible chemistry with a lot of female co-stars, like, combusting, as it was with Syelle and Sylaire for example. He can do it.

To me, they've proven their on screen chemistry. It may have been more that some of the other friendships & working relationships needed to be developed. Most romances do hit a rough patch here and there, so I prefer not to read too much into it.
