That said, the two were apparently required to keep six months’ distance, which could spell a questionable future for the film franchise.

Bryan Fuller’s CBS All-Access revival of Star Trek has upped its fan cred twice over with the additions of Nicholas Meyer and Rod Roddenberry, though many also point to Fuller’s diversity pledge with past suggestions of Angela Bassett and Rosario Dawson. Sadly, Bassett doesn’t believe herself available, and we have American Horror Story to blame.

Early buzz around Hannibal creator Bryan Fuller’s 2017 return to Star Trek for CBS All-Access has seen Wrath of Khan director Nicholas Meyer joining the project’s old-school appeal, and the legacy of Gene Roddenberry will be kept intact as well. The legendary Star Trek creator’s son Rod Roddenberry has now joined the project as producer.
