Wrath of Khan's Nicholas Meyer joins new Trek show!

This is the best possible news I've heard about this show.    Finally gives me some hope that Star Trek could actually come back in a real way.    The JJ-Abrams movies were fun for what they were, but they weren't Star Trek.   Trek has always been more of a Humanist-leaning Character Ensemble Drama.    Something that takes humanity's faults and holds them up in a mirror to us, so that we can learn from them.  Bryan Fuller and Nicholas Meyer seem to understand this intrinsically, which gives me hope.

Also, look at that photo of Meyer above?   He's the most vulcan looking human being I've seen since Leonard Nimoy!

It’s official. Bryan Fuller, who will co-create, produce and serve as showrunner of the upcoming Star Trek series, has just announced the news that Nicholas Meyer has joined the show’s writing staff and will be a consulting producer.
”Nicholas Meyer chased Kirk and Khan ‘round the Mutara Nebula and ‘round Genesis’ flames, he saved the whales with the Enterprise and its crew, and waged war and peace between Klingons and the Federation. We are thrilled to announce that one of Star Trek’s greatest storytellers will be boldly returning as Nicholas Meyer beams aboard the new Trek writing staff,” said Executive Producer, Bryan Fuller.
Meyer, of course, is beloved by Star Trek fans worldwide for directing (and co-writing, uncredited) Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, co-writing Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home and co-writing and directing Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.
The new Star Trek series, produced by CBS Television Studios, will launch in early 2017. In the U.S., a special premiere episode will air on the CBS Television Network and all subsequent first-run episodes will be available exclusively on CBS All Access. The series will also be available on television stations and platforms in other countries around the world.
