Wrath of Khan Director Joins New Star Trek Series

CBS has drafted Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan director and uncredited writer Nicholas Meyer to work as a writer on the new Star Trek TV series they are currently developing with Bryan Fuller (Pushing Daisies, Hannibal) attached to showrun. Coincidently, Fuller's start in the business was as a writer on Star Trek Voyager, and Deep Space Nine.

"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," Fuller said. "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's Star Trek credits also include screenplay credits on Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, which he also directed.

The first episode of the new Star Trek series will air January 2017 on CBS, after which the show will move to the network's streaming service, CBS All Access.

In 1977, Meyer received an Academy Award nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay for a Sherlock Holmes movie starring Alan Arkin, Vanessa Redgrave, Robert Duvall, and Laurence Olivier titled The Seven-Per-Cent Solution.

  1. Yes, he made "Wrath of Khan" the best STAR TREK movie past and present but it wasn't perfect. Using "SPACE SEED" as the jumping off point he overlooked several things that could have made it even better. Too late now. Don't know what this new series will be about but it won't take much to screw it up.
