    Paramount Global has a complicated ownership structure.

    Eighty percent of Paramount Global's voting shares are controlled by a company called National Amusements (Viacom CEO Sumner Redstone's old company).

    If anyone were to try to buy Paramount without going through National Amusements (a la Byron Allen and Apollo), they risk leaving National Amusements in charge of the company.

    Warren Buffett also owns a large minority stake in Paramount Global.

    More like grandfather. Which is something I've seriously suggested.

    Not sure if this has been posted yet, but it's a deleted scene from season 3 mention Deanna and piloting the Enterprise...
    I can see why it was cut, but as a deleted scene I got a giggle out of it.

    I'm glad they deleted that. Contrary to popular belief, Deanna was not actually flying the Enterprise in Generations. Yes, she went and sat at the helm, but the dialogue even made it clear that Data had taken over flight operations, further proven when he says he's leveled the saucer's descent during the crash sequence. And as for Nemesis, she was ordered to ram the Enterprise into the Scimitar, so that's not her fault at all.

    But of course such facts get in the way of all the "woman driver" jokes we've had for the past thirty years.

    I fully agree. As a meta-joke between the actors, I can see how this was funny. But yes, the gender-biased 'women suck at driving' jokes at the expense of Deanna have been horrible over the years.

    Seriously, with how much of the crew they managed to rescue and how the saucer remained intact and salvageable, Deanna (and Data) should have been given medals for such a flawlessly executed emergency landing. And they probably were.

    • I can't see P+ merging with Amazon (Amazon already owns MGM. They don't need another studio.)
    • Warner is $55 billion in debt. They're not in any position to do a merger.

    If there's anyone who can make a merger with Peacock happen, it's Jeff Shell.

    Hopefully on the same day as Picard's court martial for losing the ship. ...assuming it still applies to the captain, even if they're not on board at the time. If not, Riker. :)

    It does. Picard is still the ship's Captain meaning the ship is still his responsibility regardless if he's on board or not. The only concession to the circumstances Starfleet would give is that Riker would also be court-martialed along with Picard.

    Although, really, a Captain being automatically court-martialed over the destruction of their ship seems rather harsh for the supposedly non-military Starfleet. An inquiry should come first with a court-martial only coming if the inquiry deemed it necessary.

    Apparently it's done (real world) so that the findings are part of the official record.

    An inquiry still comes first simply because to do otherwise is to imply the Captain is suspected of criminal misconduct, which no one wants to be accused of right off the bat, unless there is overwhelming evidence to support as much.

    For what it's worth the novels have attempted to explain that the only reason Picard was automatically court-martialed over the Stargazer was because an intact starship was left abandoned for potentially anyone to find and take. Had the ship actually been destroyed, he would have gotten an inquiry first.
