“Star Trek has been an important part of my way of thinking about the world, the future, human nature, storytelling and myself since I was 10 years old,” said Chabon. “I come to work every day in a state of joy and awe at having been entrusted with the character and the world of Jean-Luc Picard, with this vibrant strand of the rich, intricate and complex tapestry that is Trek.”

Chabon will be working alongside executive producers Akiva Goldsman and Alex Kurtzman. Details about the show’s plot are still under wraps, but the series is expected to premiere next year.
