Saldana Considers Sequel Story Points

Zoe Saldana is making the rounds to promote The Losers that is about to hit theatres. While speaking with MTV, she pondered some of the story points that might be worth exploring for the sequel with the relationship between Uhura and Spock.

"It would be interesting to see what they are going to do with it," agreed Saldana, who expects to begin work on the film toward the end of this year. "I really hope they keep [the relationship] and continue to explore it.

"But at the same time too — this is coming from my mother, who is a Trekkie — I could be wrong, but I thought that Vulcans only mate every seven years," Saldana said, referring to Pon farr, which causes both Vulcan men and women to go into heat and forces them to essentially reproduce with their lover or die. "So now that the planet [Vulcan] has been extinguished, it's kind of interesting. Can Spock mate with a non-Vulcan?"

"His mom wasn't a Vulcan," [Loser's co-star Columbus] Short reasoned, "But he can still mate [with a survivor and help the Vulcan population]."

"It's OK [to consider such issues]," Saldana said to her co-star, agreeing to disagree on such geekiness until "Trek 2" comes together. "I love it."

  1. Vulcans can mate anytime of the year the seven year thing is just a custom practiced by them.
