Commentary: Trek Stars 27: What Would Meyer Do? / by Trek fm

Meyer II Part 1: The View from the Bridge.

Last season, Mike and Max covered the career of Nicholas Meyer as a novelist. This week, we kick off our second season with a series focusing on his career as a director. 

In the first part of our series, we’re joined by Meyer expert John Tenuto to talk about Meyer’s memoir, The View from the Bridge, focusing primarily on his work in Trek. We discuss his contribution to the writing of The Wrath of Khan, the similarities between The Voyage Home and his first movie, Time After Time, how his vision of The Undiscovered Country conflicted with Gene Roddenberry’s, and what he would have done if given full control of Star Trek III.
