    1. I believe the rights are caught up in the split between Paramount TV & Paramount Pictures that happened about the time it was made – the TV rights for the existing (1-5) movies went with one, the rights for 6 (which was under production) went with the other, then the rights for the subsequent TNG movies were done separately.

      Note there’s also no ST: Nemesis. No loss there, particularly when you can still marvel at Uhura’s fan dance in 5…

  1. I guess they’re giving up the pretence of SBS 2 being “the home of emerging culture” and how it “‘challenges the status quo” by targeting 16-39 year olds with diverse content”.

    Nothing against Star Trek movies, with the possible exception of JJ Abrams’ recyclings. I’m just sad to see SBS 2 – once a refuge from SBS, after it went mainstream and soft multigrain (if not completely white bread) – head in the same direction as SBS.
