Nicholas Meyer, best-known to Trek fans for his work on several of the Star Trek movies including Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, has joined the staff of the new CBS Star Trek series as a writer/producer.
“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 Bryan Fuller, who made the announcement. “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.”
The new Trek series will air next January.
