i dont know what decipher has to do with the cc, but i kinda doubt they got the licence for the tng era and tos trek stuff. so whoever has the rights right now, could shut down cc anyway
even if cbs decides to publish a trek card game, it would be completely different to 1e and 2e, so no conflicts there.
You see not to understand. The rights to ANY Star Trek Game are owned by CBS. They own the Intellectual Property. CBS knows about us, but they can safely ignore us. If we do anything that threatens their IP, then they have 2 choices....
1) Ignore it, and thus loose their rights to the IP which would cost them a fortune
2) Officially take notice of those parties threatening the IP, and take legal action (Cease and Desist for example).
Given that they will certainly choose the option to keep the rights to the IP, they will have to shut us down the moment we threaten the IP. Since we have always operated under the original Decipher license, which covered properties that are all now 20 years old or older, we don't pose a threat to the current IP.
