Povill To Direct 'Star Trek: Phase II' Episode

A story written for the original Star Trek Phase II of the 1970s will be filmed for the modern-day Star Trek: Phase II and directed by one of the writers who originally wrote the story.

As reported by Star Trek: Phase II Jon Povill, whose history with Star Trek stretches back to the 1970s, will be directing the next episode of Star Trek: Phase II.

The Child, written by Povill and Jaron Summers, was originally written to have Ilia (Star Trek: The Motion Picture) impregnated by an alien. This storyline was not used in Star Trek: The Motion Picture but was recycled for Star Trek: The Next Generation, where Deanna Troi took the place of Ilia as the mother-to-be. In this most recent incarnation of The Child, a Deltan will be the woman impregnated, as in the original version of the story.

Coming in to the original Star Trek: Phase II 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 Gene Roddenberry and was the associate producer for Star Trek: The Motion Picture.

After his Star Trek work, Povill became a producer and a script consultant on the sci-fi series Sliders. Povill also worked on the screen story for Total Recall, made in 1990.

Hey look, no comments. (This one doesn't count.)
That's right, the article isn't about ST-XI.
