Re: DC Comics' Star Tek (1st Series)

DC's Star Trek comic ended in November 1988 but resumed in September 1989 as series two. What was the reason for this?
I believe it was that DC's contract was up and they needed to renegotiate to extend it. Bob Greenberger's column in issue #1 alludes to a negotation that took longer than both sides wanted.

Was it because Paramount didn't want the original characters created for series one in the comic and therefore a year was needed in order to "reboot" the comic sans the likes of Bearclaw, Bryce, and Konom?
I think it's really just a coincidence that the contract negotiations happened to hit at the same time that Richard Arnold's "Reign of Error" began to be felt.
