Uhura, a role made famous by pioneering African-American actress Nichelle Nichols.Back in July, at San Diego Comic Con, we learned that “Heroes” villain Zachary Quinto will play a young Spock, and also that “Trek” veteran Leonard Nimoy would reprise his role as an elder version of the Vulcan.Scroll down to see the rest of the crew roster as it stands.
