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!
