Nicholas Meyer hinted a few weeks ago that he had another Star Trek project in development, and now we know what it is: a miniseries about Khan Noonien Singh.
Geek Exchange reports that it will be a miniseries, not an ongoing production, set on Ceti Alpha V during Khan’s exile. Bleeding Cool News speculated that the planetary setting was intended to keep costs down.
Interesting idea for a show. Doesn’t sound very Star Trekky to me, but if it’s successful, it could be a good thing for the franchise in terms of momentum.
