Could Star Trek's return to TV be closer than we think?

Star Trek fans, it's time to cross your fingers. Why? Because we may finally get that new Trek TV series we've all been waiting for, and it could happen sooner rather than later IF the geek-empowered dynamic duo of Bryan Fuller and Bryan Singer can have their way.

Yep, both Bryan Fuller (Pushing Daisies) and Bryan Singer (X-Men) have previously tried their hands at bringing their own vision of Star Trek to TV in the not-so-distant past, both to no avail.

But after teaming up for that NBC Munsters TV reboot, now called Mockingbird Lane, both Bryans have come to the conclusion that they may be able to bring Trek back to the small screen if they do it together. After all, two heads are better than one, no? And Fuller has the Trek street cred, having written episodes for Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Voyager in the past.

This is according to Ain't It Cool, who've spoken to Fuller:

Fuller tells AICN exclusively that the two Bryans, who have long (but separately) contemplated new Star Trek TV series, have discussed the possibility of pooling their resources to take a new corner of Gene Roddenberry's multiverse to the small screen. Hopefully J.J. Abrams and Les Moonves will give them the keys to Starfleet HQ.

Will it happen? We don't know yet. But is it possible it'll happen? Heck yeah!

With J.J. Abrams' Star Trek movie efforts taking place in the new alternate timeline with the original-series U.S.S. Enterprise crew of Capt. Kirk (Chris Pine), Mr. Spock (Zachary Quinto), Dr. McCoy (Karl Urban) and company, Fuller and Singer only need to keep on trekkin' with the original timeline, preferably setting the new Trek TV series sometime after the events of Star Trek: Voyager.

But what do you guys think? Do you think the joined forces of Fuller and Singer will be enough to "make it so"?
