How long until Disney acquires Star Trek, and could they do a worse job than CBS in managing it?

Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico, and CBS laid waste to Star Trek.

If you have no interest in Star Trek, there will still be something to chew on in this episode, but come on, who doesn't like Star Trek? (Don't answer that.)
