Zachary Quinto is not quitting Star Trek he is merely stepping aside for a brief moment to work on other projects. But that did not stop Trekies around the world and all over the universe from having a panic attack when Quinto said in an interview with Wired that ;
I’m stepping away from Star Trek for at least two years — no movies, no conventions, no anything for a while.
People read too much into this statement and fail to realize that the next Star Trek is not do out till 2012. And if I can count on the fingers on my hands and toes on my feet that is 2 years. Obvious mistake though and one that can easily be made. Though it did force the actor to write in his blog an updated clarification of that previous statement.
I have been inundated with questions and confusion about a comment i made during an interview with wired – about the new Atari Star Trek online game – in which I said I am stepping away from trek for the next two years. obviously I will be a part of any upcoming films… reprising my role as Spock. what I meant was that in the meantime I won’t be making any public appearances related to the franchise – or doing anymore auxiliary projects pertaining to the trek universe. I will be focusing my efforts on other projects and preparing to shoot the next film – which will be released in June of 2012… two years from now. Hence the no trek for two years remark. worry not trekkers. It was a misunderstanding of context. I am not Spock. But I am Spock. all at the same time.
