I had forgotten that Orci and Kurtzman's K/O Paper Products though. Does that mean that any Abamsverse tie-ins after Into Darkness comes out would have to be approved by K/O too, or would it still just be Paramount, CBS, and Bad Robot?
I'm not really sure how it works. You'd have to talk to someone who's actually in the loop. Orci comments regularly on TrekMovie.com, and sometimes does Q&A threads, so maybe you could ask him there.
