There's a Mysterious New STAR TREK Project In Development With WRATH OF KAHN Director Nicholas Meyer

Some interesting news has surfaced regarding a new Star Trek project in development. What makes it even more intriguing is the fact that writer and director Nicholas Meyer is involved with it. Meyer directed both Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.

According to AICN, Meyer is a writer and producer on the project and he may even end up directing it if it moves forward. According to their source, the mysterious Star Trek project is "not a book or documentary and it’s not a video game.”  

So what could it be? It'd have to be some kind of new series, separate from Star Trek: Discovery, which Meyer also worked on. There's no official word on what's going on with this project, but the report speculates on what could come of it:

Wouldn’t it be WILD if Star Trek suddenly turned into Paramount/CBS’ version of Disney's Star Wars, with loads of Trek projects suddenly in production simultaneously or in rapid succession? (Remember back to 1995, when “First Contact,” “Deep Space Nine” and “Voyager” were all before cameras at once.)
Wouldn’t it be WILD if these Star Trek projects were set at different points in Federation history, some even far subsequent to Admiral Janeway’s subspace conversation with Captain Picard in “Star Trek: Nemesis”? (I know similar rumors have been brewing for years, but lately I’m hearing … new tales.)

It would actually be pretty damn awesome if that's what was really going on. I'd love to see something like that happen with the Star Trek universe. As of right now, this is just a wild rumor, but it will be interesting to see how it plays out. What do you think this could all mean?
