Meyer: ‘Different Is What Got Me Interested’

New writer shares what attracted him back to Star Trek for new series

It’s been some 25 years since Nicholas Meyer has done any Star Trek. And why is that? Apparently, the answer is simple: “No one’s ever asked me.” Den Of Geek reporter Ryan Britt caught up with Meyer soon after he was announced as the newest member of the Star Trek: Series VI writing staff. While Meyer won’t share anything specific about the new series being developed by Alex Kurtzman and Bryan Fuller, he can say what it won’t be. “I think it’s going to be a different Star Trek. It will go in a different direction,” Meyer said, “And I think that is probably good, because …

Could Fuller’s Trek Series Re-Boot TNG?

New TV show co-creator gave hints about new Trek in 2013

It’s a little bit of the old mixed in with a little bit of the new. Alex Kurtzman, who made his name in Star Trek through the J.J. Abrams-directed films, was first attached to the new Star Trek series planned for next January by CBS All Access. But now a face from Star Trek past, Bryan Fuller, has come aboard as well. What does this mean? Will this be Star Trek in the new universe that Kurtzman helped create? Or could it be Star Trek from the old universe that Fuller has been a part of through shows like “Star Trek: Voyager” and “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine”? Or could it be …

Offering original program through streaming service is just beginning, chief says

Although some fans are not liking the idea that they’ll have to pay a separate subscription to see the new Star Trek series in 2017, it appears CBS Corp. is looking to make its CBS All Access platform worth the fee. Right now, the new Trek series under development by Alex Kurtzman is the only exclusive original programming CBS has planned for its streaming service, which costs a little less than $6 a month. But CBS Interactive chief executive Jim Lanzone says there could be more original programming on its way. “Star Trek is the only scripted original that we have announced …

Is CBS Trying To Make Star Trek ‘Cool’?

Network should excite fans, embrace what made the franchise great

To boldly go where no one has gone before … At least, one would hope so. Most of the world has heard the news: Star Trek, after a 10-year hiatus, is returning to television in the early months of 2017, or at least partly. CBS Television Studios says it will launch a new Star Trek television series in January 2017. The new series will begin with the first episode being broadcast on CBS and all later episodes broadcast exclusively on CBS All Access, the network’s digital-subscription and live-streaming service. So, basically CBS wants us to shell out $6 per month to wa …

One Fan To Orci: Here’s How To Make Star Trek Great Again

It’s time to really take the franchise back to its roots

It’s exciting to me to see Star Trek become a box office success again, and we have to thank J.J. Abrams and his crew for injecting new life in the franchise. But now J.J. is gone, working on some other obscure science-fiction empire, and Roberto Orci is going to try his hand at directing for the first time. I know there is some concern about allowing a rookie to take over the director’s chair, but I’m not worried. I’ve had a chance to hear firsthand some of the thought process that goes through Orci’s mind, and while not everything he touches turns to gold — you still can …
