With the early teaser for the Tom Paris Collectible Plate from Star Trek: Lower Decks Season 2: Episode 3 - We'll Always Have Tom Paris, Star Trek Unlimited has received an outpouring of requests for Voyager merchandise! Historically somewhat ignored by licensors, many of you took to Twitter to express your desire for more.
We want you to know that we're listening! If there's something specifically you're looking for, we will be setting up a formal product-idea submission process soon! But there are a few things you should know about product-licensing!
Let's say you have an amazing idea for your favorite fandom. How can it get made? The first thing you need is a manufacturer who is licensed to manufacture that item.
Star Trek Unlimited, specifically its manufacturing entity Ukonic, holds several licenses including Star Trek, but we can't just make whatever we want. There are rules set up when we sign the license which we can't break.
When we can't make something you want, it can feel like we don't care. Truth is we do! We want to make weird and wonderful things just like you do! Between us and finished product lie bankers, freight forwarders, factories, licensors, and retail executives. Everybody in that chain has to make money or the machines stop working. It isn't ever personal. It's business, and that can feel pretty cold sometimes.
Licensing is hard, but when you've got a team, like ours, who are enthusiastic about Star Trek and a great partner in ViacomCBS to help us, amazing things can happen. As we continue to develop items with the fans, we hope you'll take the above into account.
We'd love to make something. It'll be fun! Will it be a quarter-scale model of an Omega Particle Resonance Chamber that doubles as a night-light? Probably not right off the bat, but let's get the conversation started!
