Jon Povill Takes the Director’s Chair

Star Trek: Phase II welcomes Jon Povill as the director for the upcoming episode “The Child”, slated to begin production in October 2008. An exciting addition to the production, Jon is a notable Star Trek alumni, having worked as Gene Roddenberry’s assistant and the story editor for the Paramount planned “Phase II” series in the late 1970’s. Jon co-wrote the series bible for “Phase II” with Gene Roddenberry, and penned the original script for “The Child” with Jaron Summers. Although adapted later for “The Next Generation”, Jon has restored his script for production by this Phase II cast. It will feature the Enterprise’s first Deltan crewman.
