Chris Pine/Zachary Quinto, also known by the portmanteau Pinto, is the RPF pairing of Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto, stars of the film Star Trek (2009) and its sequels. It's the biggest part of the Star Trek RPF fandom.


Pinto is the most popular Star Trek RPF even more popular than its predecessor within the fandom, Shatnoy. Many would argue that the popularity stems from the many interviews that Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto had together while promoting Star Trek (2009) in which they demonstrated a great chemistry according to the fans, who also argue in favor of the ship due to the involvement of the actors who maintained a friendship outside the set when they went out together.
