I've listened to a bit of it. 47:35 is then the Abrams stuff comes up, and it's about the Countdown
comic. The guy says the original script for Countdown
killed Worf, Picard and Riker and destroyed Earth, and it was them (Cryptic) saying how badly it would screw up their story for STO that got it changed.
The stuff about the novels (which comes up earlier) is basically the guy being suprised that CBS has allowed the novels to make the big changes in the Trekverse that they have, and him speculating that they might not care or read them because they wouldn't ever allow STO to make similar changes.
