Just to clarify -- No "new" "older" Trek stuff until Nov of next year... that's why we are scrambling to get our TOS set out by year's end. Only "ST Into Darkness" merchandise in 2013.
This is very common in Hollywood. We had to delay releases like X2 and Planet of the Apes (Elfman) to make way for the newer films that were released recently.
As for DS9, its looking like we can release it very early January 2013 as long as we can get it all signed off on by the Holidays.
The thing about restrictions on merchandise not STID (god, what an unfortunate acronym) is just as interesting, I think, especially since it seems that the novels and reference books are not affected...
