I was reading a book somewhere, and the actual title escapes me -- it might
have been about art or scifi or 3D modelling or what have you.  But the
authors were afraid to put the words S-T-A-R- T-R-E-K  in print, even though
they were making indirect references to it,  and they stated that they were
afraid of lawsuits from Paramount for infringing on their work.
