Star Trek fans have had a tumultuous last few months. But it seems that amid the recent ups and downs (a fan film getting shut down by CBS and Paramount most definitely qualifies as the latter), news of the upcoming streaming exclusive finding a showrunner with Trek in his blood should ideally register as a win. Whether you count yourself among the Rodenberry faithful or are just a TV addict, the name should ring a bell: Bryan Fuller. He wrote for Deep Space Nine and Voyager in addition to working outside of the final frontier where he's been a scribe and executive producer on the criminally short-lived Hannibal.

He also has creator credits for Dead Like Me and Pushing Daisies on his resumé and is adapting Neil Gaiman's American Gods for Starz. So yeah, his history as both a geek and a creator of some seriously well-regarded TV checks out. Of course, if you want to watch how his greater vision for Trek fares next year, a $6 per-month subscription to All Access is still a requirement.
