Just how steamy will the new Star Trek movie be?

The film's star Chris Pine told us not too long ago that the upcoming installment of the outer-space franchise has been "sexed up for a new generation." However, he wants everyone to know that the Starship Enterprise hasn't been turned into an intergalactic flying orgy.

Back in November, Pine, who stars as Capt. Kirk in the new Trek flick, said he not only shares some steamy lip-locking with Rachel Nichols, but he also predicted a scene in which Zoe Saldana takes off her shirt will "become famous."

Fast-forward to Sunday night at HBO's Golden Globes party...

"It is a different Star Trek, but there's no crazy sex scene," Pine told me at the Beverly Hills Hilton poolside soiree. "There may be some bare midriffs, but you know it's been a long time since the bikini was invented, so I don't think we're going to ruffle any feathers."

Beaming into theaters on May 8, the J.J. Adams-directed movie follows the early years of Kirk and Co. and also stars Zachary Quinto as Spock and Winona Ryder as Spock's human mother, Amanda Grayson.

Chances are Pine attracted a few more fans when Paramount released a trailer for the movie featuring the hottie in nothing but a pair of underwear. The same could be said for Ms. Saldana, who is shown tossing off her shirt.

Sex aside, Pine says he's ready for the Star Trek mayhem to begin. "I'm just waiting patiently," he said. "I'm like an 8-year-old kid on Christmas Eve."
