Other licensees include License Factory, who will develop apparel and accessories, Jumbo Games, who will design a line of puzzles, Jada Group, who will launch die-case figures and many more.

Plus, a new Star Trek TV series, produced by CBS Television Studios, will also launch with a special preview broadcast on the CBS Television Network in early 2017.
