    It's a sad state of affairs when a large number of people actually take someone with a moniker like "Doomcock" seriously.

    It's still a very bad sign that the people making the show are doing things with no or incorrect understanding of why. Ditto the writer who said they're not allowed to use anything from any of the movies. I have no doubt their art is suffering as a result.

    I agree with those saying the 25% different thing was to be able to sell mew Enterprise merch.

    So someone is making ship toys. But it doesn't really matter how many companies do it now, if someone wants to do an Enterprise collection down the line having an additional design benefits CBS.

    Given that the same people claim that Kurtzman was secretly fired and is now just some powerless figurehead puppet, I don't think common sense or reason will be kicking in any time soon.

    Powerless figurehead puppet they're still paying seven figures to.

    That's the kind of failure I aspire to be.:lol:

    ^^^
    Which writer or producer on ST: D (or any of the new Trek series in production) actually said that?

    I ask because CBS IMMEDIATELY posted that Mr. Eaves was incorrect and that they could use anything from past Star Trek material in any way they choose as they own the copyright to all of it.

    There's no reason to expect most of this stuff to become less shitty.

    There is no reason to expect TrekBBS members reactions to become less shitty either, unfortunately.

    We’ve had movie content in the show already (Vulcan landing craft, ceti eels), so she seems to have misunderstood.

    I believe that King Daniel Beyond was saying that the creative staff were poorly informed as to why or why not they did things.

    I wonder if they will creat a free CBS All Access live version for Pluto TV sometime in the future? A live version means you watch what ever is streaming at the time.

    While I'm leaning towards her being misinformed (and thus the writing potentially suffering as a result), it could also be that those references were snuck in under the radar, akin to the novelverse's myriad Kelvin universe references (icy Delta Vega, Tattooed bald Romulans, Red Matter even though they don't call it that) while they explicitly didn't have the rights to feature Kelvin stuff. It would also explain why Sybok never appears even though he really should be in those Sarek family flashbacks.

    Damn, I need to make my own Midnight's Edge-style conspiracy video.:lol:

    I think it was more at that time Paramount still held the license to all the Kelvin Timeline stuff (The same was the MCU had licensed Spideman to Sony) - so yes, CBS owned it all but as Paramount had a paid for license, IF CBS wanted to include KT stuff they'd have to make a deal (like what Mavel Studios did with Sony for their Spideman films).

    But yeah, it's all moot with the re-merger.

    I just hope we see Kelvin-type ships in the Section 31 show now (the only show atm taking place in the TOS timeframe).
