According to a new report in The Wrap, Viacom Corporation (parent company of Paramount Pictures) and CBS Corporation are considering merging. According to the report, Shari Redstone, who is vice-chairwoman of both companies and president of National Amusements, which holds stakes in both, is “pursuing a merger.”
This would be of particular note to Star Trek book fans, as you may note from the sidebar, the future releases of new fictional books is looking spares with only three books announced for 2018 so far:
- Star Trek: Discovery: Drastic Measures
- Star Trek: Voyager: Architects of Infinity
- Star Trek: Discovery: Fear Itself
Normally by this time we’d know of at least twelve full length novels. Perhaps this is why there’s nothing new announced?
