Nicholas Meyer, the director of “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan” and “Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country,” has followed Bryan Fuller into making a triumphant return to the Star Trek franchise.
And just in time for its 50th anniversary.
Meyer has been named to the writing staff of the upcoming Star Trek: Series VI, according to The Hollywood Reporter. This will make the first time Meyer has ever been involved with the television side of Trek, and the first time he’s even touched the franchise since writing and directing “The Undiscovered Country” in 1991.
Meyer will not only join the writing staff of the series, but he’ll also carry the title of consulting producer, according to the trade publication. He will work closely with co-developers Alex Kurtzman and Fuller to bring the franchise to life.
