The latest chapter in the ongoing saga of CBS and Paramount’s efforts to sue the Spock ears off of the producers of Star Trek fan film Axanar continues today, with a new development from the Los Angeles federal court system. This hullabaloo began back in December of 2015, when copyright-holding studios CBS and Paramount got wind that a fellow by the name of Alec Peters had raised nearly a million dollars (that figure is now well over a million) for an independent film project taking place in the Star Trek universe. Because studio executives did not remember selling the creative rights to Mr. Peters, they did the reasonable thing and hauled him into court, claiming the man had infringed on ‘thousands’ of copyrights.

Among the myriad questions Arrow Season 5 still has to answer in 2017, the mystery of Prometheus’ identity may take us to a previously-inaccessible corner of the Batman universe. We know we’ll finally meet Ra’s al Ghul’s daughter Talia, but what might she have to do with the newest big bad to Star City? Allow producers to explain:
It’s been an exceptionally punishing year for fans of The Walking Dead, who first endured the cop-out of Negan’s entrance, a summer spent waiting, and about eight episodes since of misery under The Saviors’ reign. Rick will finally fight back when Season 7 returns in February, and Andrew Lincoln insists “There’s a lot more levity, if you can believe that.”
Time will tell if we ever see The Simpsons attempting another theatrical venture, but in the meantime, mid-January will pad Season 28’s runtime a bit with a first-ever hourlong episode.
