Ultimately, with my responsibilities [elsewhere], I could not do what CBS needed to have done in the time they needed it done for Star Trek. It felt like it was best for me to focus on landing the plane with American Gods and making sure that was delivered in as elegant and sophisticated a fashion as I could possibly do.
I’m not involved in production, or postproduction, so I can only give them the material I’ve given them and hope that it is helpful for them. I’m curious to see what they do with it.”

Fuller Verifies No Longer Part of Star Trek: Discovery
Bryan Fuller has officially confirmed that he no longer has anything to do with Star Trek: Discovery. When it was announced was no longer the showrunner, it was suggested that he could continue to stay on as advisor and writer. To me it just read as Hollywood nonsense to allow those involved to save face. I continue to think that CBS outright fired him because his attention was clearly focused on his lucrative projects of American Gods and Amazing Stories. While my theory will likely forever remained unconfirmed, Fuller himself did verify that he has no part of Star Trek: Discovery as it soon begins filming.
