Personal Quote:

[on Time After Time (1979)] One of my original conceptual things about the Ripper was that of an exceedingly handsome, elegant man. Wells, next to him, was a runt who wore glasses, and so forth. The Ripper had an image of tremendous power and potency, not just as a menace, but as an attractive, seductive human being. What was it that women went for him? See more »

Trivia:

Credits his success at writing the Star Trek films with his near-ignorance of the original series. Despite heated disputes with creator Gene Roddenberry, Meyer stuck to his vision of a more nautical-style Starfleet, and is widely credited, along with Harve Bennett with reinvigorating the franchise.
