The scene in the bar was the most fun but I think walking onto the set of the Enterprise for the first time and seeing it teeming with people and its perfectly ergonomic design that evokes the old bridge effected me tremendously. On a set usually there are people everywhere–they’re draped on chairs, they are sitting on apple boxes, they are on every bit of the set decoration–this was no different except there were 60 people milling about, but there was no one in the captain’s chair.
All the stuff on the Romulan ship the Nurada was real. It was three-dimensional it was something that JJ [Abhrams] wanted to take a lot of care to create. To make them really 3-imensional and buld them all so they really feel real. The set of the Nurada was massive, massive tons of black, dripping hydrolics. It was modular so they could shift it around with ina day to represent a different part of the ship that was the genious of it’s design
Zach Quinto and Chris Pine are very funny guys. It was a laugh riot every day. The whole cast is full of very funny people actually so we just had a lot of fun. J.J. likes the controlled chaos so the sets were so big that quite often he'd have to use a microphone to get everybody's attention. But he'd start by going [beat boxes], much better than that of course because he has a lot of rhythm. But it was just a crazy chaotic scene that was a lot of fun for everybody.
Nothing that's freaked me out at all. The people that I've met that are really into it, and I've met a lot now, are just really enthusiastic and fun to talk with.
Yeah, there's about an hour's worth of material of Pike at home playing guitar, playing piano, singing, juggling. There's a long juggling sequence that they removed but he was alone and dressed in peculiar clothing that I can't comment on.
No, I mean I watched it as a kid sort of intermittently.
