If Bryan Fuller had his way, the next Star Trek would be appearing on television.
Fuller spoke about his desire to see Trek on television, and what he would like to see, while doing publicity for Hannibal, which he created and which will begin its second season next year.
“I expressed interest that I would love to do a Star Trek TV show,” said Fuller. “Again, that was my very first start, on Deep Space Nine and Voyager. That was my first job as a writer in Hollywood. So having spent four years on staff and another year of freelancing before that on Star Trek, it’s a very near and dear property to my heart, and also a philosophy. I would love to create a Star Trek show, so that’s on my dream docket.”
If Fuller could do Star Trek, what does he have in mind? “I think there’s something very exciting about the new J.J. Abrams-verse, and there’s also kind of an interesting reinvention,” he said. “How would The Next Generation evolve from that? Where would that be? Where would that go? But there’s also…Star Trek is such a big universe, and there are so many places to go with it. I have a very specific idea that I would love to do. We’ll see if I ever get the opportunity.”
