I wonder what the issue is?
Each of the actors have different approvals, and they've used their "power" to influence some tie-ins over the years. eg. Playmates forgot to get a TMP trading card of Spock approved once, so he vetoed it being included with his 4.5" action figure. Le Var Burton rejected an action figure (only he and Patrick Stewart get to approve their TNG action figures, IIRC) because it had the wrong hair style. Patrick Stewart didn't sign off on an Applause figural mug, so he's the only TNG character not represented. Gates McFadden wanted some kind of approval re images used in trading cards, and didn't get it in her contract, so she can be testy about signing them, but she'll sign other material. And so on.
That's interesting. Someone should start a thread on that topic. I love hearing weird random stuff like that.
