In a new video interview at TrekMovie.com, Simon Pegg spoke about being a Star Trek fan and how he wants to play Scotty in Star Trek 2.
Unlike many Trek fans, Pegg didn’t start out with either the original series or with Star Trek: The Next Generation. He entered the world of Star Trek while watching the animated series as a child. “It was my gateway into Star Trek because I didn’t actually start watching the original series until I was about nine,” he said. “I definitely came across the cartoon first.”
