Super-exciting news if you're a Trek fan like me! We already knew that a new Star Trek series is coming to CBS All Acess (the network's digital platform) next January from Alex Kurtzman and Bryan Fuller, but now we know a veteran Star Trek Writer/Director is coming on board. Nicholas Meyer will be a Writer and Consulting Producer on the new Trek series. And this is awesome news because he's behind the best Star Trek films out there: Wrath of Khan, The Voyage Home, and The Undiscovered Country. Basically, he was involved with every even number Star Trek movie featuring just The Original Series cast and, as all fellow Trek fans know, those are the ones that rock! The Voyage Home is my personal favorite, though that's followed super-closely by Wrath of Khan and First Contact.
I'm super-excited that some of Meyer's caliber is coming on board and have very high hopes for the new series! Can't wait to learn more about where and when it will be set and find out who else will be coming on board both in front of and behind the camera.
