I don't understand why Paramount hates Star Trek so much. Just sell it to some party who cares about it already and stop ruining it.
Different regimes at Paramount have been fucking with the time honored formula of what Roddenberry intended ever since he died in the early 90s. Except every time there is a management turnaround at the top of the company it gets worse because they all think they are going to 'fix' what the last management regime broke. This is how people like Braga and Berman were allowed to drag the TV shows into oblivion and how JarJar Abrams was trusted with the keys to the kingdom, only to polarize the audience even more by turning it into a lens-flare addled action franchise instead of the science fiction technobabble filled morality play it was intended to be.
You do know Paramount is a wholly owned subsidiary of CBS, right?
There is no CBS anymore anyway. It's really VIACOM who just renamed themselves CBS after they absorbed it. Viacom owned Paramount long before they bought out CBS.
