Think of it this way. CBS retains the rights for the "prime" timeline on everything filmed and the story of Romulas' destruction.

Paramount has rights to anything in the new timeline for the current (2009 +) movies.

While the 2009 movie showed the Kelvin uniforms, all art assets (including Uniforms, Bridges, ships, etc) belong to the Paramount license for Star Trek. So canon can only go so far before license (and lawyers) take over.

the whole licensing stuff is retarded...someone awesome should just buy all the rights and never split them up again...as long as its NOT disney...

BUT, the new movies arent the same, and could be kept seperate, and named star trek 2 universe or something more zazzy.

anyways, back on topic...i was wondering what those platforms were for

Think this is bad, try dealing with Microsoft Licensing for a living.

Back on topic too,

Yes, I have been wondering what those circular disks were for. I was wondering if they were personal cryo tubes or something like that.

Does this mean the TWoK uniform gets a polish or does it still look like a disgrace?

What good is an awesome fleet hub if it is DESERTED all the time. Even in large fleets, the starbases are deserted most of the time, as STO closes the fleet starbase-instance as soon as you log out, therefore you will spawn at that location you've been at BEFORE entering your base.

Please Cryptic, do NOT prevent the awesome fleet starbases from becoming the social zones they should be! Save the instances, so people don't get kicked off the base after logging out.

There's no such thing as universes in licensing terms. It's by work.

Now, CBS probably has increased negotiating ability for Kelvin uniforms.

I see that the Voyager uniforms are missing.

It seems to me as if they have accidentally omitted the early DS9 and VOY era uniform between TNG and TNG Movie/Late DS9.

while i think the KDF project looks cool and all but the fed projects are a joke tbh , certainly not worth the 200k dilithium cryptic want for them

I really like these, I just wish the rest of my fleet weren't inactive so we could afford it.
