No, it isn't. If they were making these films the way they are supposed
to be made, we'd have plenty of official material to look over, from story points to concept art to production materials, carefully rolled out for public consumption and consideration. That's the way Trek did it for nearly 30 years, and that's the way it should be done now.
This cat-and-mouse BS is exactly that...BS. Tell us what you're doing, and how you expect to do it. Then we can examine what you offer and make our own decisions as to whether or not it is acceptable.
