The company that can say yes or no is CBS. Without their okay no one else can touch it.
Does CBS own the rights to Star Trek?

I presumed Paramount pictures did, or is that just the rights to produce the films?
CBS owns TV Trek, Paramount only has control over theatrical Trek

Complicated. Paramount and CBS were part of the same company for many years. When they split that company, CBS got ownership to most (all?) of the TV IPs, including Star Trek.
Thanks for the clarification.
