Zachary Quinto talks with us about his new Star Trek role: As a voice in the new Star Trek Online MMO.

Quinto, who played Spock in the recent Star Trek movie, voices a completely different character this time around: An Emergency Medical Hologram.

But Quinto says that fans of the movie and fans of gaming will both get a lot out of the game. "The crossover, that gaming and Star Trek exist in similar worlds but not the same world," he says, "this is a unification of those two worlds."

Quinto explains how epic the new game is. "You could spend hours just creating the character you're going to play," he says.

You can learn more about the game at Syfy.com's new Star Trek Online site. The game is now live.
