Of course not. Paramount is a business and doing what you suggest would only hurt their profits. You are looking at it as some sinister plot to erase the original Star Trek from existence. Ok not that extreme but you get the idea.

yeah i have to agree with others here. It makes absolutely no fiscal sense to stop fan productions. And im sorry, stop selling movies and dvd series??? Are you serious?!?! No way in $%*@. They just came out with TOS season 1 on blu-ray! Unless they wanted to take a significant financial loss, they will continue such releases. It really seems like you're just trying to stir the pot honestly.

Star Trek has been, and always shall be... Paramount/Viacoms cash cow.

The needs of the one, depends on the needs of many.

Which is why there are so many books and web versions of this franchise. As this new 'look' is accepted and allowed to grow, its just one more avenue, along with what is here, to grow the franchise and give fans of all versions a taste of a vision for the future.

I think you see what I mean.

I look forward to your comments

Please excuse my spelling errors.
Paramount is a studio, they go where the money is and there is alot of it in TOS, TNG, DS9, VOY and ENT. It's Paramount's scifi bank, their one true scifi franchise.

My experience in fan-based projects is that Paramount's willingness to let them go on over the last 40+ years has kept Trek out there and alive among fans even during the dry spells among the general public. In my years selling fan-based art, the only time ever came up against a studio cease and desist was with Beauty and the Beast-- and look where that is now?! So I think that Paramount has realized it's to their advantage to allow fan-based creative efforts to continue.

Disney, for all of its family image, sure it notorious about anything 'unauthorized'. I remember the case of them going after an elementary school for having a picture of Mickey on a wall. Oh and of course pouring a ton of lobby money on extending copyright laws. Its because of such things that I have to laugh at stuff like the dildo castle tower in the Little Mermaid cover art.
