Exactly. I've talked to Paramount about the Star Trek trademark and
copyrights for my games and they basicly told me as long as I release
it for free, that it is exclusively made for the VI market, they
aren't going to complain about it. So far they never bothered me about
Final Conflict as I followed their advice to the letter. Instead of
releasing STFC as a commercial product, as planned, I released it as
freeware. If people want those sorts of games to continue they
shouldn't press me for commercial quality Star Trek games. That is
games requiring any serious financial investment to create. Obviously
since I can't sell any games with the Star Trek name on it any
investment has to come out of my own pocket with no way of earning it
back through sales. Anyone can see why that wouldn't be a very good
business decision on my part.
