Oh, and check this fan encounter:
So, this is me and ZQ. I’ve been waiting for this for a long time and I literally cannot believe it just happened. I was proud of myself for being able to actually hold a conversation with him. Well, kind of. He looked really tired. But I just introduced myself, shook his hand, told him I was a big fan and it was nice to meet him. He smiled a classic ZQ smile and said, “Thank you so much for coming out.” I felt like I was cheating because we didn’t actually see the play because it sold out so quickly. But I live in Manhattan on 34th Street, so I just figured, ‘heyyyyy let’s not do reading for American Political Thought and Practice and go say hi to ZQ instead.’
Anyway, he also signed my friend Rosie’s philosophy book (Augustine). And he wrote, “Rosie, stay smart! xox Zachary Quinto” It was precious. When she and Katie took a picture, Rosie said, “Can we hold up the vulcan sign?” And he said, “You can!” And so she did.
I really adore him even more now. Even though he has crazy eyes in this picture.

‘I can’t wait to go back,’ actor said of sequel while attending San Diego Comic-Con.
Though Zachary Quinto is at San Diego Comic-Con to promote “Lucid,” the first comic from his production company, Before the Door Pictures, which debuted at the Con, he was willing to shed some light on the upcoming “Star Trek 2.”
There isn’t much known about the sequel, though writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman told MTV News that they’re “making significant process on the story.” Quinto, who was joined by “Lucid” creator and author Michael McMillian at the convention, said he is ready for anything the writers throw at him.
“I can’t wait to go back. We have a while until we’re going to do another one. It probably won’t be until next year at this time,” he said, debunking rumors that filming would start in January.
J.J. Abrams, who directed 2009’s “Star Trek,” hasn’t confirmed that he will be directing the sequel, but Quinto said he would still be onboard even if Abrams isn’t.
“I have a lot of trust and gratitude and respect for J.J. [Abrams] and Damon Lindelof and for Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman. They know what they’re doing,” Quinto said. “I would obviously love to see J.J. directing every ‘Star Trek’ movie that I’m ever a part of, but if it’s not the case, I’m sure whoever does will be someone he’s chosen for whatever reason. They know what’s up. I just show up where they tell me to show up and stand on a piece of tape.”
When asked if there might be a Spock-versus-Khan confrontation in the film, Quinto avoided the question by pretending he was asked if there would be a Con, in the film. “Actually, ‘Star Trek 2? takes place at Comic-Con. Have you gotten an advance copy of the script? Unacceptable,” the actor joked.
Quinto continued, “I don’t know man, I don’t know. I’m just excited. My focus is elsewhere and I know that when the time is right and they want me to be involved again … Until then, I love to let them do their thing because I know that what they’re doing is really exciting but also really fun. They’re good people.”
