Finally some good news for Star Trek fans. It looks as though Paramount is dropping its lawsuit against Axanar. JJ Abrams made the announcement yesterday but,according to this blog post, there is still a ways to go before everything is hammered out.

Even though we’re really excited by what JJ Abrams and Justin Lin shared at last night’s Star Trek Beyond event, the lawyers need to do their work (on both sides) before the lawsuit is officially resolved. This means we need to make sure we still meet all of the required filing deadlines for responses, etc. which we will (this takes a great deal of Alec and Winston & Strawn’s time).
