We already know that Hannibal and Dead Like Me’s Bryan Fuller will be a showrnner on the new Star Trek series and that Tony Todd may well have a role in it, but now we have more awesome news.

It now seems that Nicholas Meyer, the director of the definitive Trek movie, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, has signed on to the new series, too.

Fuller released the following statement:

“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.” 

Meyer will be on board as a writer for the new series, and it shows that the new series is being taken seriously.

This could be the rebirth Trek fans have been waiting for.

When Meyer took on Star Trek with Wrath of Khan, the series was arguably flagging. The Motion Picture had done well, but hadn’t left anybody

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
