Star Trek and Dr. Seuss - a laughable pairing surely? Well maybe not.

In the US a judge is allowing Dr. Seuss Enterprises to proceed with a lawsuit against the tiny ComicMix company. They're behind a book which retells the classic Oh The Places You'll Go as Oh The Places You'll Boldly Go - a recreation featuring Star Trek characters and scenarios.

Shaun D Wilson spoke to Ars Technica's Cyrus Farivar  about the case, as well as his thoughts on the latest Trek on tv - Star Trek: Discovery.
