Nicholas Meyer, Writer and Director of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, has joined Bryan Fuller’s (Hannibal) upcoming Star Trek series for CBS’ All Access streaming service.
“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,” Said Fuller of Meyer, “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.”
Meyer also worked on the 4th and 6th entries to the Star Trek movie franchise.
This news comes after the recent announcement that Star Trek Creator Gene Roddenberry’s son, Rod Roddenberry, has joined the series as a Producer. Star Trek is set to debut its premiere episode in 2017 on CBS, with additional episodes available exclusively on the CBS All Access streaming service.
