Another interview, this time from Cinemablend:
It’s weird how calm they are about just handing the controls of the ship to somebody else, basically any time Kirk leaves the room.
It’s excessively calm. Well, it can’t be empty, and the captain has business to attend to.
You’re not in on the action as much this time, and I know you enjoyed getting involved in the fight scene in the first film. Are you pushing so they’ll give you more action next time?
I don’t tell them what to do at all, ever. I have ideas, but I’m afraid to ruin my own career by giving them bad ideas. Strangely enough I was glad I had something physical to do in the first one because it gave me some routine that I really loved, and I missed that this time around. Having to learn the martial arts and having to keep up on this fight routine was some kind of regularity in a chaotic process.
Just added 40 + photos of the cast of Star Trek at the Off and Running Gala at CinemaCon in April:

Great interview with John about PSAs, Star Trek pranks and why Star Trek is good for the world:
When he’s not saving the galaxy on screen, Cho is home in L.A. with his wife, the actress Kerri Higuchi, and their son, 5, and daughter, three months. “That takes up a lot of my time, especially being a modern father,” he says. “My own dad, he wasn’t even in the country when my brother was born. I don’t think he ever changed a diaper. He thinks babies are cute, but he doesn’t know what to do with them.” Cho’s parenting advice is simple, though: “You being around is all that they want,” he says. “Ninety per cent of being a parent is just being present and available.”
But when the final frontier calls, Cho is happy to answer. “Being part of this franchise is a gift,” he says sincerely. “It’s part of the American cultural canon, so I’m honoured. Without sounding corny, I think Star Trek is good for the world. It’s a positive message, with positive imagery, people of different backgrounds going on a scientific mission.”
