Hewitt: Creating The World Of Deep Space Nine

Wolfe Developing New Space Show

Thursday, November 10th, 2011

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine‘s Robert Hewitt Wolfe is developing a new show for Syfy which will be set in space.

The unnamed series, from Universal Cable Productions, will be set on the Starship Defender. “After decades of war, the newly formed Unity Democracy orders a volatile mix of humans and trans-humans to lead the Starship Defender on an expedition in search of lost worlds requiring law and order,” said Syfy.

The new show sounds a bit like Gene Roddenberry’s Andromeda, on which Wolfe was an executive producer and head writer for the show’s first two years.
