Nicholas Meyer, responsible for writing and directing two of the most successful Star Trek films (The Wrath of Khan and The Undiscovered Country), as well as co-writing the screenplay for Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, has joined CBS’s new Star Trek television show, set to premiere on CBS All Access in 2017. “We are thrilled announce that one of Star Trek’s greatest storytellers will be boldly returning as Nicholas Meyer beams aboard the new Trek writing staff,” said the series’ showrunner Bryan Fuller while speaking with The Wrap.

Meyer’s other credits include the Sherlock Holmes novel The Seven Percent Solution, which he adapted into a screenplay, and the award-winning Time After Time, a film he directed and co-wrote about H. G. Welles as he chases Jack the Ripper into the 20th century.
