As far as 1979 goes, isn't Simon and Shuster a subsidiary of Viacom, which owns Paramount?
Negatory. Simon & Schuster is a subsidiary of CBS Corporation, the corporation which owns CBS Studios, which in turn owns Star Trek and its trademarks.
Same difference. Usually in-house subsidiaries have a leg up on the competition when it comes to licensing. Which is why I don't find the 1979 remark impressive. An in-house company has to 'screw the pooch' pretty badly to have the license taken away.
In other words, you're making an assumption with no facts to back it up. Gotcha.
