In a telephone interview with Wired.com Zach has distanced himself from Star Trek-related activity for the next two years.
He told interviewer Gus Mastrapa “I’m stepping away from Star Trek for at least two years — no movies, no conventions, no anything for a while.”
He also stated “I’m stepping away from that genre and exploring a lot of other territory,” Whether this includes the fantasy series Heroes was not clear, but his comments may worry producers at Heroes who are currently pitching for a fifth season to NBC.
UK based Constellation Events currently have Zach announced as their first guest for a Glasgow convention in July.
The statement probably would not apply to promotional appearances such as any which might occur at San Diego Comic-Con or similar events, as these would normally be within the contractual obligations for Star Trek and Heroes.

UPDATE - From the horse's mouth
i have been inundated with questions and confusion about a comment i made during an interview with wired - about the new atari star trek online game - in which i said i am stepping away from trek for the next two years. obviously i will be a part of any upcoming films... reprising my role as spock. what i meant was that in the meantime i won't be making any public appearances related to the franchise - or doing anymore auxiliary projects pertaining to the trek universe. i will be focusing my efforts on other projects and preparing to shoot the next film - which will be released in june of 2012... two years from now. hence the no trek for two years remark. worry not trekkers. it was a misunderstanding of context. i am not spock. but i am spock. all at the same time.
