Bryan Fuller’s exit from Star Trek represents a move away from auteur-led television

Ultimately, then, there’s no reason to believe that this won’t be, broadly speaking, the same show we were promised at Comic Con, and as part of all the subsequent announcements. And yet, at the same time, there’s something astonishingly disappointing about Bryan Fuller’s departure from Star Trek.

Part of the reason why I was so excited about this new show was because of Bryan Fuller’s involvement; it elevated Discovery to more than just the latest Star Trek show, but something special in its own right. Because Bryan Fuller is a writer at the top of his game, who’s widely renowned for his unique creative vision – consider the artistry of Hannibal, for example – and I couldn’t wait to see him apply this to Star Trek, a programme that he holds a lifelong passion for and an innate understanding of.

My reaction from a few weeks ago regarding Bryan Fuller’s exit from Star Trek: Discovery. I am, I must admit, astonishingly disappointed.

(With hindsight, I suspect this is not a very good article. If nothing else, I am now waaaay less into the whole auteur thing than I was then; really, I didn’t even believe it anymore by the 31st.)
