Nicholas Meyer (1945) didn’t just direct Star Trek II; he wrote the script, using the best elements of several teleplays. He cast a young Kirstie Alley in the role of Saavik; instructed Production Designer Joe Jennings to make the Enterprise sets darker and costume designer to make the Starfleet uniforms more militaristic.

Meyer returned to Star Trek in 1986 to write half the script of The Voyage Home. In 1991, he directed the final adventure of the original Star Trek crew: The Undiscovered Country.
