Thanks to Philomina for the heads up.

1. You play the cybernetic-humanoid Enterprise Starfleet Bridge Crew Member 'Science Officer 0718' in the new "Star Trek Into Darkness". What can we expect from this character?

0718 is one of the new officer additions to the primary Enterprise bridge crew. I'm an augmented human, in a way that increases my intelligence & reduces my emotions, sort of like an artificial Vulcan. My main job is to work closely with the science & engineering systems in a role that shadows Spock's position.

2. J.J. Abrams said in an interview with his reboot of the "Star Trek" franchise he wanted to bring optimism back to science fiction movies. Would you say this is also the premise in "Into Darkness"?

I totally agree with J.J., and he's definitely succeeded with "Into Darkness". Speaking for myself and a lot of people I know, we are totally bored with dark, depressing movies which end in misery and death leaving no hope for the hero or mankind. In these movies the earth is a dark, bleak, and depressing place full of very bad people who never look beyond the ends of their selfish noses and kill and hate indiscriminately. With "Into Darkness", J.J. has returned to what made "Star Trek", the original series, so compelling in the first place. It's about hope, exploration, trying to do the right thing for friendship, love, and ultimately humanity. There are many strong political and humanitarian morals to this movie, and after 132 minutes of tears, laughter, tension, and surprise, you leave the theater with a sense of happiness and pride in humanity and our future. That is very rare for a modern movie or TV show.

3. Abrams also said you don't need to be a "Star Trek" fan to enjoy this movie. Would you agree and what does this mean for the movie in terms of is it more action/drama, less "technobabble" or something like that?

This is a movie that a total "Star Trek" first timer will love, as well as a hardened Trekkie! There are so many moments that relate and pay homage directly to previous movies, and especially the original series, that only Trekkies and fans will understand and appreciate, but you don't need to understand their origination to still feel the humor, tension, sadness etc. It's a very well-crafted script.
