They can not acknowledge, this to you. Because if they decide to go ahead with the project, you could claim rights and demand compensation.
That's really weird. The closest I ever got was asking de Lancie if he felt comfortable in the Borg costume.

True, but Trek is a cash cow CBS and Paramount just love to milk.

/snip/ The original footage would have been with the licensee, Simon & Schuster Interactive, (and with Interplay for "Starfleet Academy" and "Klingon Academy") and, once they no longer held the license to make Star Trek computer games, the original footage would no doubt have been destroyed, since they could no longer profit from them, or even rerelease them, without renewing the license. It costs money to store this stuff.
This seems very plausible.

Despite the bad news, I am still determined to get this game onto YouTube with most of the functionality intact. In the meantime, I'm going to see if I can get written permission from Paramount and S&S. I know it's a long shot, but it is worth a try!
