star Trek fan film lawsuit

Last year, over $1 million was raised on Kickstarter and Indigogo for Axanar, a Star Trek fan film. The ambition was to make both a short film and a polished, feature-length fan film, but then CBS and Paramount stepped in and filed a lawsuit to prevent Axanar from going into production, claiming the film violates the rights of intellectual property. After a bit of an uproar surrounding the lawsuit, Star Trek Into Darkness director J.J. Abrams said the lawsuit would soon go away. But it hasn’t.

Update from Editor Peter Sciretta: This week, paperwork was filed in court by the movie studio to dismiss this claim as an irrelevant third party statement. According to TF, Axanar has requested to obtain any communications the studios had with Justin Lin and J.J. Abrams over the issue but according to their lawyers, CBS and Paramount refused to hand anything over, claiming the information is irrelevant to the case. After the jump, see the e-mail.

But anything beyond that? Go ahead and consult your crystal ball, because Fuller isn’t confirming or denying anything, it seems.

That brings us to the latest Bryan Fuller tidbit: to commemorate Star Trek‘s 50th anniversary, he revealed that a famous episode of the original series is a “touchstone” for Star Trek: Discovery. What is the Balance Of Terror Star Trek Discovery connection? Let’s take a look.
