In the announcement, Fuller said: “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.”

  1. I’m thrilled to hear there’s a new Star Trek series coming. However, I’m probably going to miss is as it will only be on a streaming service and probably be maximized for phones and pads, and will cost $6 a month to watch.

  2. I thought CBS was still a broadcast network?

  3. Guilty Cleric, so did I. But, like all monolithic corporations, they will do what THEY think will garner them the most money with the least effort and smallest expenditures. American business policy: “I’m going to take as much of your money as I can get away with, and you can go f*** off.
