Actor Simon Pegg has said that the UK premiere of Star Trek is a "geek dream come true".

Pegg donned a kilt for the Empire Leicester Square event in honour of his character Scotty and said he was inspired to dress up by the Scottish side of his family.

The new movie is a prequel to the famous TV show and features a young crew venturing boldly where no one has gone before.

Pegg said: "For me, tonight is very special. It's the Empire Leicester Square. I saw films here as a child... it's a geek dream come true."

The Shaun of the Dead star said that the weight of the past was on the new characters a little bit but said he had played his own version of his role.

He said: "I love the Star Trek fan base. They are world leaders in positivity." Pegg said it was not silly to dress up, adding: "It's brilliant. Anyone who looks down on it is cynical."
