Zoe Saldana talked to Access Hollywood about the upcoming Star Trek sequel Monday night at the Glamour Reel Moments premiere in LA.

Although Saldana admitted a script hasn’t been received yet, she says, “We’re very excited to read it and get back into space.” The film is set to begin filming in mid-January and will not be titled Star Trek 2.

Saldana, whose character Nyota Uhura was romantically involved with Spock (Zachary Quinto) in the original film, doesn’t know if the romance will pick up where it left off. She says “I’m really curious and I’m pretty sure that Zach is as well.”

I’ve never seen the first installment; I’ve never been a Star Trek fan, so I don’t care one way or the other. It seems like I’m in the minority though.

Are you excited? What do you think?
