(AP) A room full of engineers, computer whizzes and technicians has brought the crew of the Starship Enterprise down to Earth for a night.


Zoe Saldana and Chris Pine hosted the annual Sci-Tech Oscars, in which the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences beams a spotlight on the latter half of its name. Saldana said the pair were humbled by the winners' innovations in movie-making technology.


It was a mostly rare brush with Hollywood glitz for the 26 men who received plaques, certificates and one statuette on a stage adorned with four large Oscar statues.


They were honored for work ranging from computer graphics software to rigs used to place lighting in hard-to-reach spots on sets.
