Star Trek fans have likely heard of some disparity between the movie and TV branches that kept the franchise off regular TV in recent years, seemingly broken by CBS All-Access’ 2017 launch of a new Bryan Fuller series. 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.

We still don’t have the clearest picture of what Bryan Fuller’s CBS All-Access Star Trek could look like in 2017, but out of the Mutara Nebula comes a familiar face. Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan writer/director Nicholas Meyer will return to the franchise for its newest TV iteration, both as writer and producer.

CBS has kept mum on details of a new Star Trek TV series since the announcement that it would debut on CBS All-Access in 2017, and its first announcement brings mostly good news. First off, Hannibal and American Gods showrunner Bryan Fuller will return to his Star Trek past to topline the new series!

For the most part, fan-fiction is all in good fun. Nobody can possibly fault diehard devotees of certain books, movies or TV shows for wanting to get involved in the fictional universes that capture their imagination, and if anything, perhaps they should be praised for channeling their passions into a creative, productive outlet. Excepting the fan-fiction that includes weird sex stuff (of which there is quite a bit), nobody gets hurt, and in a way, it could even be considered free publicity for the texts on which it’s based. But the low-stakes world of fan-fiction only works when it remains just that; a place for enthusiasts to share in their fandom. Once fan-fiction begins to take itself a little more seriously, and expand more aggressively, and accrue support from studios and major distributors, and, most importantly, make money, then play-time is over.

Star Trek fans are hard to please. Even though J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek from 2009 revitalized the old franchise with new energy and a great cast, some Trekkers felt it pushed the franchise too far from its roots in harder, more intellectual sci-fi. And then Star Trek Into Darkness came along and was even more poorly received by the die-hards; one particularly unhappy bunch at a Star Trek convention named it the worst film in the entire series. (And if you’ve seen every movie in the franchise, you know just how insulting that is.)

‘Spectre’ and How the Ghosts of Old Movies Become Bad Twists

There is a precise moment when Spectre turns to crap. Before this moment, it is a superbly stylish espionage thriller. After this moment — which can be pinpointed down to the exact shot and lines of dialogue — it falls apart, and its carefully cultivated atmosphere of mystery dissipates like a, well, you know.
