Interview of Nicholas Meyer by Ryan Britt of Den of Geek…
“I think it’s going to be a different Star Trek. And I think that is probably good, because the thing that mainly troubles me about Star Trek is the fear of it being maybe re-treads of itself. Bryan [Fuller] has ideas, some of which I’ve heard, that are innovative and different. Different is what got me interested.
“The Undiscovered Country—according to Bryan [Fuller]—is a real sort of taking off point, or touchstone for how I guess he’s thinking about the direction of the new show. I don’t want to be misquoted and I don’t want to misquote him, but he’s fond of that film. Let’s put it that way. -Nicholas Meyer
Interview of Bryan Fuller by Scott Huver of moviefone…
“I think we will be seeing lots of crews in the story. One of the things that is exciting for me is that we are telling a “Star Trek” story in a modern way. We’re telling a 13-chapter story in this first season. It’s nice to be able to dig deep into things that would have been breezed passed if we were doing episodic and had to contain a story to an episode.
“It’s going to be weekly. And what it does allow us is, we are not subject to broadcast standards and practices. So we can have profanity if we choose — not that I want to see a “Star Trek” with lots of profanity. But we can certainly be more graphic than you would on broadcast network television.” -Bryan Fuller
