Warp Speed

 Instapundit reports that Nicholas Meyer will be executive producer on CBS's new Star Trek Series!


Wrath of Khan and The Voyage Home (which Myer directed) were Star Trek at its best and the last that really kept faithful to the spirit of the old series before the deliberate shift in philosophy and tone that was evident in TNG. 

CBS seems to be shooting for the old Desilu magic. 

This could actually warrant some attention. 

UPDATE: Belay my last Meyer's role is not so critical as we were led to believe. So much the better...

...it will make the inevitable disappointment that much more exquisite.

1 I am curious as to how much of the pre-existing story will be considered canon (if any).  It might be worth a watch, but I am not feeling optimistic at this point.

The linked article still says Kurzman is executive producer; Meyer is a "consulting producer and writer."  So the reboot commissar is still in control. 

Also, this series is behind a paywall after the first free hit.  I'm not subscribing to yet another service.

4 Well dang.....
Actually it is Meyer and not Meyers (unless something is Meyer's).

This is a new Star Trek series..and it tasks me. It tasks me and I shall watch it! I'll watch it if I have to watch it 'round the moons of Nibia and 'round the Antares Maelstrom and 'round perdition's flames before I give it up!
Well...the pilot at least.
