Last year, Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan director Nicholas Meyer perked the Spock ears of fans everywhere when he hinted that he was working on a new Star Trek project. Instead of coyly fan dancing around the subject, Meyer revealed he's been working on a trilogy of Star Trek films for CBS All Access, the home of Star Trek: Discovery. During a "Shakespeare and Star Trek" event at the University of California, Meyer told the audience that he had been hired to write a "standalone Star Trek-related trilogy" for CBS All Access, but that the project was now "on hold". I was writing it for CBS [All] Access.

They're in a power struggle which turned really nasty this past week when CBS chose to sue Viacom. I'm sure a televised film trilogy would be a little unconventional - but with someone like Meyer at the helm, it could have the potential to be something special. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.

Meyer's comments regarding the situation are of course referring to this week's escalating legal battle between the two companies, which began Monday when CBS filed suit against parent company National Amusements to try and shake themselves free of managerial control, followed by National Amusements' "outraged" reaction to this legal action and the two companies heading to court today amidst the annual CBS upfront presentation to television advertisers occurring this afternoon in New York City.

Finally, we are getting some clarification on what's coming for the next installment in the Star Trek Kelvin Timeline - well, at least what won't be coming to the universe. Pegg stars as Scotty and co-wrote Star Trek: Beyond, but it looks like he will keep beaming people up for the time being.
