Nicholas Meyer Reveals Star Trek Movie Secrets Live & In Person

Nicholas Meyer, writer / director of Star Trek II & Star Trek VI & writer of Star Trek IV, will be reading from his new memoir, "The View from the Bridge: Memories of Star Trek and a Life in Hollywood," at 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 14, in Prairie Lights Books at 15 S. Dubuque St. in downtown Iowa City, Iowa.

As reported by, Meyer shares how he created the script for “The Wrath of Khan,” the most revered “Star Trek” film of all, in 12 days -- only to have William Shatner proclaim he hated it. He reveals the death threats he received when word got out that Spock would be killed, and finally answers the long-pondered question of whether Khan's chiseled chest is truly that of Ricardo Montalban.

He [also] includes reminiscences on everyone from Gene Roddenberry to Laurence Olivier, while chronicling his involvement in a myriad of Hollywood projects. In addition to the “Star Trek” films, his many credits include an Oscar nomination for the screenplay of “The Seven Per-Cent Solution,” ( adapted from his New York Times bestseller ), writing and directing the classic sci-fi thriller “Time After Time,” and directing “The Day After,” the controversial film about nuclear war that became the most watched movie ever televised.
