Seven of Nine also had a prominent role in Braga's Hive series. Or did Braga's involvement in that negate any licensing concerns?
Doubtful, because he doesn't own the characters, CBS does. I guess there's enough flexibility in the licensing deal to permit guest stars, or maybe they can be licensed on a case-by-case basis.
Well, they're going so far as to use DS9 promotional shots for the "Q Gambit" photo covers, never mind the contents of the comics. Either they've sorted a short-term general Prime universe licence for that - with the Flesh and Stone one-shot them taking further advantage of it - or there's some serious flexibility as long as they don't use the actual DS9/VOY/ENT logos.
IDW used to have a DS9 license, maybe that presents some loophole they're taking advantage of with The Q Gambit?
