Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?!!!

That's some of the best news I've heard on the STAR TREK front in quite a long time. The TREK franchise has been sorely lacking writers of Meyer's caliber for too long.

I may have to get on board with this one!

OK, this just went up massively in my interest meter.
Bryan Fuller I like for the most part (I'm pretty sure he was the reason I liked season one of HEROES)

Nicholas Meyer? My favourite Star Trek films come from him (isn't this true for everyone?)

Please be good, please be good, please be good

I still need to see a pilot episode before I consider that Star Trek is back on the right track again after the disappointment that were the last two movies, and a lot of Voyager and Enterprise.

There are now a couple of people on the team who have a good reputation when it comes about Star Trek (and perhaps other products they have worked on), but Kurtzman is also on the team and in general I consider him toxic to whatever he is involved with.

To be honest, I don't know what the right time period would be. I am not actually that keen on a show set after STVI and before TNG for example.
A show after Nemesis could work I guess but there would be a lot of fixing to, and I am not that sure new watchers would be interested.
As for the new timeline, I find it rather a mess from what I know about the movies and the comics (but I don't recall if it was Orci or Kurtzman who considered the comics somewhat canon)

Yep - I was sitting on the fence on this one until both Brian and Nick showed up...

I guess Alex Kurtzman knows to pick people who actually seem to care, rather than just pick old buddies to run things (unlike J.J.).

Rod Roddenberry's presence will come down to which of Gene's visions he feels he must protect, TOS or TMP.

If the first episode is entertaining enough I might pay the fee to see it online. I balance it out by leaving my Netflix service off during that time period.

Cautiously optimistic. Sounds great on paper, but will this be a true labor of love for all involved, or a case of too many cooks...?
