Zoe Saldana and Zachary Quinto are going boldly where no man has gone before–for a third time.
The two stars have been sharing pics of themselves on the set of "Star Trek 3," which recently began filming. Although new mom Saldana is enjoying a magazine in the makeup chair it seems Quinto is already back in full costume, dressed in character as Spock.
Quinto previously told Variety that he believed the third installment of the rebooted franchise would involve the five-year mission. If you're not a die-hard fan of the classic TV show, you might be confused by what that might be. Well, let the original James T. Kirk (now played by Chris Pine) tell you.
The famous journey is "to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before." Otherwise known as the dawn of a famous quote.
"I think the five-year mission will be a part of this next film in some way," Quinto told the trade publication. "We're coming up on the 50th anniversary of one of the most iconic sci-fi series in entertainment history so it's inherently an ongoing story. But I do think that we'll feel some sense of evolution in these characters that's been building through the first few films."
Writer Simon Pegg has been very quiet about the third movie, but he did hint that Idris Elba may or may not be in the upcoming film.

"I heard there's a rumor he's been spoken to about stuff--so he may be in the film, but he won't be a Klingon," he said, addressing rumors that Elba would play the main villain. "Or maybe he will."
