Bryan Fuller's Star Trek series adds three new writers

We still know very little about Bryan Fuller's Star Trek TV series that will debut next year. There are rumours that it will be an anthology series, that the first season might be set between the original Star Trek and Star Trek: The Next Generation eras and that it might feature multiple crews. But the only thing we do know is that Bryan Fuller, who produced such great shows as Hannibal and Pushing Daisies will be the showrunner and he has brought Star Trek veteran Nicholas Meyer (writer of Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country) and Gene Roddenberry's son Rod onboard.

Now TrekMovie.com had confirmed that Fuller has added three new writers to his staff, two of which have a rich history with Star Trek.

First up is Joe Menosky, who was a producer on Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Voyager. He wrote numerous episodes for the franchise (including Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), particularly Star Trek: The Next Generation classic Darmok and Star Trek: Voyager fan favourites Scorpion and Year Of Hell.

He is joined by Aron Coleite, who was a writer and producer on Heroes.

TrekMovie.com have also confirmed that a third writer, Kirsten Beyer has joined the new Star Trek TV series. Unlike the other new additions, she is a novelist, who has written eight novels based around the USS Voyager, set after the end of the TV series. These stories feature Admiral Kathryn Janeway, Voyager captain Chakotay, Voyager first officer Tom Paris, Voyager security officer Harry Kim, U.S.S. Galen chief medical officer The Doctor, fleet chief engineer B’Elanna Torres and Starfleet Academy professor Seven of Nine. It is interesting to note that her writing features several crews, leading credence to the the new show will focus on one than more ship.
