Zoe Saldana is eager to take another trip on the Starship Enterprise in the sequel to “Star Trek.”

“I know it’s gonna be amazing,” she told Access Hollywood at Monday night’s Glamour Reel Moments premiere in Los Angeles about the next installment, helmed by J.J. Abrams.

“We still haven’t gotten a script yet,” she said of progress on the film, which Access has confirmed with a source will begin shooting in mid-January, and won’t be called “Star Trek 2.” “We’re very excited to read it and get back into space.”

As fans know, Zoe’s Nyota Uhura was romantically linked to Zachary Quinto’s Spock in the first installment in the rebooted franchise, but she doesn’t know whether the love story will continue.

“I’m really curious and I’m pretty sure that Zach is as well,” she said.

Beyond “Star Trek” sequel talk, Zoe shared her excitement for Zachary’s recent admission he is gay.

”[I’m] so happy and proud to call him a friend and to be a part of his life around a moment that is so strong and inspired,” she said.
