Let me be clear: I'm a Trekker from the original airing of The Original Series, and I do understand the tendency of many fans to think of Star Trek as "ours". Yes, Star Trek has permeated the culture over half a century to such an extent that it becomes all too tempting to think there is no longer any such thing as ownership of the intellectual property. This is a cultural point of view that is completely irrelevant from a legal standpoint. In the internet age, people tend to think of intellectual property as just "out there", ethereally belonging to everyone, owned by nobody. Legally, nothing, but nothing, could be further from the truth. Axanar's producers have indeed crossed into commercialization and financial enrichment in ways no other fan works have done, and few who comment on Axanar in a public arena have fully understood the hazard this implies for all intellectual property.
