    From the first episode of Star Trek in 1966, up until the last episode of Enterprise in 2005, the Star Trek canon consisted of multiple tv series and feature films, all of which were interconnected, and which spanned several starships and crews over the course of 200 years. Such interconnectivity is no longer possible. Modern Star Trek consists of the rebooted Paramount/Bad robot films set in the Kelvin timeline, and Star Trek Discovery, which has no connection to the movies, as it is set in the prime timeline – despite it not lining up with canon in any way, shape or form.

    There is a reason for that. Behind this drastic change, are complex rights and licensing issues, which are frequently referenced, but their details and implications have hitherto not been fully explored. In this video, we will break down these rights and licensing issues, their repercussions, and the key people for better or worse associated with them, and if there is a way forward where canon can be preserved.

    Yup, whatever your view of the Kelvin films or the DSC series there’s no denying that the licensing mess with Trek is a massive headache.
    Much of this convoluted world building and time period decisions would not be happening if there was some common sense with licensing so people wanting to make new content had full access and were not being constrained.
