Specifically, CBS and Viacom are merging back into one entity. Previously, CBS owned the TV rights to Star Trek while Viacom owned the movie rights (they split up in 2006). It’s partly what led to the JJ Abrams 2009 reboot movies, rather than a continuation of the TNG/DS9/VOY story arc. This will also mean that all of Paramount’s movies will be (theoretically) available on CBS All Access in the future.

In sadder Star Trek news, Barbara March, the actress behind the cunning and ruthless Lursa, has passed away at 65 from cancer. May she live on in Sto’Vo’Kor.
