Playing Chicken With the Lawyers

Keith R.A. DeCandido has discovered a book called Star Trek: The Death Wave, by a chap named Austin P. Torney. (Actually, Torney describes Death Wave as a "screenplay/novelette," which sounds an awful lot like "Office? Submarine!")

Pretty boring, huh? Well, what if I told you that Death Wave was published by an outfit called CreateSpace, and that there's no sign that it was authorized by anyone who actually owns Star Trek trademarks?

So -- anyone think that Viacom will be as warm and fuzzy with Mr. Torney as they have been with Phase II?

Clicking on the CreateSpace link, one discovers: "CreateSpace, a DBA of On-Demand Publishing LLC, part of the Amazon group of companies."
