  4. Daniel Baker:

  5. Simon Pegg:

    You have to bring in new people at same time as satisfying the old people or rather the long term fans, and if something becomes too inside, it's not going to let people in and 'Star Trek' is so inclusive, it's always about bringing people together - that's what the story's about, so it's a balance of filling it with stuff for people that have been there for 50 years and at the same time making it for someone who has zero years of 'Star Trek'.
