According to Fuller’s IMDB page, his Star Trek credentials include two episodes from Deep Space Nine. He’s credited with writing the episodes “The Light And The Darkness” as well as “Empok Nor.” During his time writing for Voyager, he was credited with 15 episodes. Some of those episodes included, “Bride of Chaotica!,” “Course: Oblivion,” “Relativity,” and “The Haunting of Deck Twelve.” As you can tell, he wrote some of the best episodes of the series.
“My very first experience of ‘Star Trek’ is my oldest brother turning off all the lights in the house and flying his model of a D7 Class Klingon Battle Cruiser through the darkened halls. Before seeing a frame of the television series, the ‘Star Trek’ universe lit my imagination on fire. It is without exaggeration a dream come true to be crafting a brand new iteration of ‘Star Trek’ with fellow franchise alum Alex Kurtzman and boldly going where no ‘Star Trek’ series has gone before.”
The new Star Trek series is set to introduce new chartacters and civilizations outside of the original mythology and canon. Kurtzman also added,
“Bringing ‘Star Trek’ back to television means returning it to its roots, and for years those roots flourished under Bryan’s devoted care. His encyclopedic knowledge of ‘Trek’ canon is surpassed only by his love for Gene Roddenberry’s optimistic future, a vision that continues to guide us as we explore strange new worlds.”
If all goes well, this series sounds like it should be a hit, but of course there is plenty of room for failure. The biggest issue is it being on the CBS streaming service. Thus far, Netflix and Hulu have been steady juggernauts in the industry, but other iterations have not been as successful. Hopefully the fans will be able to keep things afloat if they approve of the new show.
