Despite hints in the trailer, don't expect Star Trek XI to be steamy according to Chris Pine.

As reported by E!Online, in spite of Pine's previous statement that the Star Trek franchise had been "sexed up for a new generation," don't expect anything that goes over the line. "It is a different 'Star Trek,' but there's no crazy sex scene," said Pine, speaking at the HBO Golden Globes party. "There may be some bare midriffs, but you know it's been a long time since the bikini was invented, so I don't think we're going to ruffle any feathers."

Pine had previously predicted that the scene in which Uhura (Zoe Saldana) is shown in her bra while changing would "become famous." Another trailer scene showed Kirk in a provocative scene with an Orion woman (Rachel Nichols) in what was said to be one of the two love scenes in Star Trek XI.

With the release of Star Trek XI several months away, Pine is ready for what is to come. "I'm waiting patiently," he said. "I'm like an eight-year-old on Christmas Eve."
