The STAR TREK CONTINUUM marketplace is a new platform where fans of the sci-fi franchise can buy, collect, and trade NFTs. With the recent launch of Star Trek NFTs on the platform, it only makes sense for CBS Studios to ensure that the STAR TREK brand is protected by a new federal trademark application,” said attorney Kondoudis.
