Povill To Direct 'Star Trek: Phase II' Episode
 
A story written for the original <i>Star Trek</i> Phase II of the 1970s will be filmed for the modern-day <i>Star Trek: Phase II</i> and directed by one of the writers who originally wrote the story. <p>As reported by <A class="link" HREF="http://www.startreknewvoyages.com">Star Trek: Phase II</A> <font color=yellow>Jon Povill</font>, whose history with <i>Star Trek</i> stretches back to the 1970s, will be directing the next episode of <i>Star Trek: Phase II</i>. <p><i>The Child</i>, written by Povill and <font color=yellow>Jaron Summers</font>, was originally written to have Ilia (<i>Star Trek: The Motion Picture</i>) impregnated by an alien. This storyline was not used in <i>Star Trek: The Motion Picture</i> but was recycled for <i>Star Trek: The Next Generation</i>, where Deanna Troi took the place of Ilia as the mother-to-be. In this most recent incarnation of <i>The Child</i>, a Deltan will be the woman impregnated, as in the original version of the story.<p>Coming in to the original <i>Star Trek: Phase II</i> back in the 1970s, Povill was "assistant to the producer," after which he became story editor. He co-wrote the Phase II series "bible" with <font color=yellow>Gene Roddenberry</font> and was the associate producer for <i>Star Trek: The Motion Picture</i>. <p>After his <i>Star Trek</i> work, Povill became a producer and a script consultant on the sci-fi series <i>Sliders</i>. Povill also worked on the screen story for <i>Total Recall</i>, made in 1990.<p>To read more, head to the article located <A class="link" HREF="http://www.startreknewvoyages.com/news072208a.html">here</A>.<center></center>
