"My heroes weren’t the actors, my heroes were the writers."
"I never wanted to be like Kirk. I mean, you know…He’s such a hothead and so narcissistic."
"Michael Reeves and I and a friend of ours named Winston Engle, we worked up a Captain Sulu series."
"Leonard Nimoy, by my lights, was always playing the Vulcan first and the human second. In other words, the Vulcan was in control. I always thought Zachary Quinto was playing the human first and the Vulcan second."
"Hey, it’s a stable world that’s led by a computer. Well, let’s blow the f**ker up!”
“That’s one of, I’d say probably six 50-to-60-year-old white dudes who could steal my girlfriend.”
"Every now and then they’ll find some Christians who, like, eat each other and throw people in volcanoes."
"The key question is ‘What do you stand for?’ And you have to mean it."
