Zachary Quinto, who plays Spock in the upcoming Star Trek movie, ran into technical difficulties while trying to do the live long and prosper Vulcan salute. Aww, crap. I need to kick my own ass after writing that.
Sources say Quinto couldn’t train his fingers to do the “V” even when he tied rubber bands around them. Eventually, J.J. Abrams “glued Zachary’s fingers together during filming.”
This may be another thing devout Star Trek fans may find issue with. It’s a slap in the face for a man to play Spock and not be able to do the Vulcan sign naturally. I wouldn’t worry too much though. Based on my stereotypes of Trekkies, it’s also dishonorable to have sex with their Seven of Nine real doll without first professing their love to it in Klingon.
