Cool

That team, dismissed in December 2007, was the group that started startrek.com, led by Marc Wade and Tim Gaskill, both Trek fans. After the Viacom reorganization and CBS started making staff cuts after acquiring Paramount Television and Paramount Digital Entertainment, the founding team was let go (including "Trek Life" artist David Reddick), and the site pretty much drifted, while the boards were put under the control of the CBS Sports division along with CBS Interactive.

The original team kept the site up to date and running right, such has not been the case since.

The good thing is, CBS Consumer Products, who will be in charge of the new site, has directed that the person in charge of the site must be a Trek fan...
