The coming movie "Star Trek" is meant to completely reboot the science fiction franchise -- which may be why the title doesn't sport Roman numerals. Director J.J. Abrams recruited a new crew of actors to portray characters that have long been linked to the cast of the original "Star Trek" TV series, which first aired in 1966. Inheriting the role of space explorer Capt. Kirk from William Shatner is relative newcomer Chris Pine. Zachary Quinto, best known as a villain on the NBC series "Heroes," plays Mr. Spock, a half-human alien who champions logic over emotion. The character was first embodied by Leonard Nimoy. The new movie focuses on the volatile youth of Kirk, Spock and their crewmates. The stakes are high: The property has been moribund on screen since the TV series "Star Trek: Enterprise" was canceled in 2005. In separate interviews, we spoke to Messrs. Pine and Quinto.
