Star Trek Producer Quits Paramount

Paramount Picture's SVP (Senior Vice President) Brian Miller, who worked as producer on Star Trek: The Video Game, has opted to leave the company following the game's poor reception.

Miller, who is set to leave the company after 14 years, led the promotional campaign for the film-game adaptation, which ultimately cost him his reputation.

"Our goal was to make the most authentic Star Trek game we could," Miller said prior to release.

"For me, if we can go out there and we can get fans to really like the game and say 'you know what, that was a really fun game' that's a win"

Upon release, the video game bombed, receiving mostly negative reviews from game critics while director J. J. Abrams (Star Trek: Into Darkness) went as far as to say he was 'emotionally hurt' by the games poor reception and claimed it had severely damaged the upcoming movie's own image.
