well I just emailed Activision....to see what they tell me... this is what I emailed to them....I dont care how bold or cheesy it is but I spoke my mind to Activision....

Why are you not making anymore Star Trek Games?....you do not need Viacom to make more Star Trek Games..you can use Totally Games or some other game company...alot of people on just about all the Star Trek forums, Bridge Commander ETC...,they are all upset at the recent events that happened between Viacom and Activision, and they want Star Trek Games to continue.. this is what I got off of a news website..and the creator of Star Trek should be rollin in his grave over this..... sueing is great,but you need to contiue with Star Trek Games.... The publisher sues Viacom for letting the Star Trek movie and television franchise stagnate and terminates the game licensing agreement reached in 1998. Activision has announced that it has filed a breach of contract suit against Viacom, the media company that owns Paramount Pictures, CBS, MTV, and several other major media brands. The lawsuit contends that Viacom hasn't kept its promise to continue producing and promoting Star Trek films and television shows at the rate it was when the two companies signed a 10-year licensing agreement <http://www.gamespot.com/all/news/news_2464976.html> in 1998. Activision alleges that "through its actions and inactions, Viacom has let the once proud Star Trek franchise stagnate and decay," and it claims that Viacom recently admitted that there are no current plans for new Star Trek movies. Activision has terminated the licensing agreement and is seeking to recover monetary damages in the lawsuit, saying that it cannot successfully develop and sell Star Trek games without ongoing movie and television production and related marketing. Activision released Star Trek Elite Force II <http://www.pi.gamespot.com:8080/pc/action/startrekeliteforce2/index.html>last week and hasn't announced any other upcoming Star Trek projects. If you will not continue Star Trek Games you should release the source code for all the Star trek games...It would be only fair to the Star Trek fans that wont get any more games.....

There is one major flaw in your arguement, since Viacom own the Startrek licence, Activision needs their permission to produce startrek games.
