I'm pretty curious as to why someone was brought in that has NO background in Trek whatsoever over someone who at the very least has a Trek game credit to their resume, or a Trek novelist, or in the ideal scenario, a writer for one of the series.

Maybe they're busy or they are more expensive. Anyway in the bigscreen as in the TV industry, the less important is who's the writter but how good is the script.
