Teaser trailer.Bryan Fuller,
the man behind NBC's Hannibal
and a writer on both DS9
is going to be showrunner alongside Alex Kurtzman.
While the presence of Kurtzman* makes it difficult for me to share Kayti Burt's
hope that this will be return to something more akin to the TV series than the Abramsverse (though Kurtzman does, at least, appear to acknowledge that they need to get back to the show's roots).
Though, when I look back over the episodes that Fuller did the stories for,
I find more episodes that I recall liking than not (Mortal Coil, Gravity, Bride of Chaotica, Empok Nor, Living Witness, Fury...) though I notice most of his stories were done with the help of others and of course I don't think he ever did the teleplays themselves, so it still gives me pause. Though with Hannibal,
Fuller has shown himself pretty good at surpassing expectation for good or ill, so who knows?
What do you think?
*Not that I absolutely loathe
the Abramsverse like wgw seems to, mind. Though, I liked the first one a lot better than I did Into Darkness
and I agree that they follow the "dumb action movie mold" more than the best of the TV episodes did.
