It was recently revealed that the screenplay for Star Trek: Discovery's pilot was co-written by executive producer Akiva Goldsman. Goldsman is no stranger to classic science fiction, having adapted TOS writer Richard Matheson's novel I Am Legend for the big screen.

On the 51st anniversary of the franchise, Mike and John take a look at some work by one of the people leading Star Trek into its next phase with Goldsman's I Am Legend. We discuss Goldsman's role on Discovery, his adaptation of Matheson's book, and how the alternate ending of the movie differs from the theatrical cut.
