    The rest matters in one sense-we want to see what happened to our person favorites in this continuity. That is why each new show has a thread asking after Q, the Dominon, Ferengi, etc. etc. That's why I don't see Star Trek do anything new when it comes to its continuity. It will all tie together because that's what fans think they want and that is what production teams are willing to give.

    Well if that's the case then every single short trek should be canon and linked to everything else. So how did no one notice a tardigrade laid eggs in the Enterprise warp engine and nurtured them for years?

    That was an in-universe kids show, just like the Tribbles one was an ad for cereal ;)

    What does someone noticing have to do with canon?

    Never heard of these. Found this comment on the internet when researching:
    So... "Tribbles" actually did contain animal fat. The plot thickens.

    There's also one site of old Star Trek merchandise (although Keebler's Tribbles seems to have been unlicensed and possibly truly pulled because of that fact) that seems to be selling an old pack of Tribbles for $1.00. I don't know if 32-year-old bite-sized chocolate chip cookies with animal fat are healthy to eat nowadays.

    VIACOMCBS reports strong earnings, with streaming up 62% and showtime/P+ increases to 36 million subscribers (about half for P+)

    While early on CBSAA's growth was mostly fueled by trek, it now has sports as a major driver of subscribers (Discovery was named in the article as a driver of subscribers). Still, the potential, Legal audience has gone from 1.5 million to about 18 million in 4 years.

    I imagine all herein have been closely following the promotional materials for Space Jam: A New Legacy. I must say, in the trailer for such, SMG has demonstrated her remarkable ability to convey bad acting... in just a second or two...

    It always does. I don’t believe it until I hear it from an official source.
