Yeah, I see what you're saying. I guess was thinking that a lot of those people came in in fairly low level positions, but that Arnold came in and was handed complete control of all of the tie-ins. I think I was just thinking that he had a lot more power of things than he actually did.
EDIT: The difference in my mind between people like Christopher, and Ronald D. Moore ect., was that you had to do something to earn the position you were in, and at first I was thinking that Arnold was just handed the position he got without having to earn it. But I guess his knowledge of the franchise, and his friendship with Roddenberry is
what earned him the position. This is really what I've been trying to say all along, I just couldn't find the words to commicate it clearly until now.
