Showrunner Bryan Fuller has announced Nicholas Meyer, known for directing and writing Wrath Of Khan and Undiscovered Country, has joined the writing staff of the new Star Trek series.
"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," Fuller said in a press release.
The new Star Trek series will launch first on CBS in early 2017. The premiere episode and all subsequent first-run episodes will then be available exclusively in the United States on CBS All Access, the Network’s digital subscription video on demand and live streaming service.
Meyer also wrote the screenplay for Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home.
