“Nicholas Meyer chased Kirk and Khan ’round the Mutara Nebula and ’round Genesis’ flames, he saved the whales with the Enterprise and its crew, and waged war and peace between Klingons and the Federation. We are thrilled to announce that one of Star Trek’s greatest storytellers will be boldly returning as Nicholas Meyer beams aboard the new Trek writing staff.”
Hailed as the man who saved the Star Trek franchise after giving the movies a new look and feel as he sat in the big chair directing the infamous Wrath of Khan, Meyer has produced some of Trek’s best work on the big screen and yesterday was announced to be returning to Trek for the new series set to launch in 2017.
Star Trek will be produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Kurtzman’s Secret Hideout. Kurtzman, Fuller and Heather Kadin will serve as executive producers. CBS Studios International will distribute the series concurrently for television and multiple platforms worldwide.
