He is a star though and definitely deserves that spot.

I think he's not above any of the others, just about the same level.
Star Trek Into Darkness this summer audaciously recognized itself as an ensemble (even though Pine is clearly the lead character) and billed the cast alphabetically! So John Chu became the unlikely first billed of the cast. I think that was really cool.
