  • Director/writer Nicholas Meyer began his movie career in Hollywood's equivalent to the mailroom: a studio publicity department. After helping to promote Paramount's late-1960s product, Meyer took a job as a Warner Bros. story editor. He parlayed a lifelong fascination with Sherlock Holmes into his 1974 novel The Seven Percent Solution, which he sold to the movies on the condition that he adapt the screenplay. Several scripts and novels later, Meyer made his directorial bow with 1979 Time After Time, a Holmesian time-travel adventure which pitted H. G. Wells against Jack the Ripper. Meyer then directed what many consider the best and most basic of the Star Trek theatrical-film series, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982). The following year, Meyer helmed the controversial post-Apocalyptic TV movie The Day After (1983). Meyer returned to the Star Trek fold with his collaboration on the screenplay for 1986's Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, and his direction and coscripting of 1991's Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.
