After first rehearsing the scene with a Spo[c]k Stunt Double Actor Zachary Quinto was then rigged to a wire in front of a large green screen and lifted to a height of ten stories high then dropped at a high rate of speed as if he was falling. In the scene Spoc]k is wearing a ‘Volcano Suit’ and carrying an unknown piece of equipment with the Starfleet Emblem. A volcano is somehow involved in this scene.

After his announcement this weekend that he was gay, Zachary Quinto has received plenty of support from Star Trek fans and the public.

Quinto made the decision to come out after the suicide of fourteen-year-old Jamey Rodemeyer, and he hopes that his decision to come out publically will make people stop and think and act when it comes to prejudice and bullying. “We have to change the discourse and we have to let people know that there’s a real spirit of openness and acceptance, and not of judgment and hatred and intolerance,” he said. “And if me standing up and making this declaration in any way feeds that notion, then I’m even happier to do it.”
