"Awesome," "mind-blowing" and "humbling" are just some of the terms used by some of the actors as well as J.J. Abrams in describing the work on Star Trek XI.

As seen on YouTube, two of the Star Trek XI actors as well as Abrams spoke with TV Guide regarding working on the latest Star Trek movie. "It's kind of mind-blowing for me," said Zachary Quinto. ""I'm really fortunate to have Leonard Nimoy really, really involved and really supportive and so you can't really get much more direct than that source."

Abrams explained again his target audience. ""It is made for people who may know the series," he said, "but it's really made for future fans of 'Star Trek,' not existing ones." Abrams went on to praise actress Zoe Saldana, Star Trek XI's Uhura. "She's awesome in the movie," said Abrams. "She's fantastic. She's always a genius."

Saldana was amazed when she saw some of the finished project, finding it very different with the special effects added into the film. ""I was blown away with the trailer," she explained. "Because we shot green screen like half of the time. And to see these buildings and to see space and stuff, it's pretty cool."
