Regarding the Tardigrades vs. Star Trek Discovery case, a Second Amended Complaint has been filed on October 29 2018. I have added more similarities and a couple of companies/subsidiaries to the defendants list. So far things are going smooth and as anticipated. Everything mentioned in the complaint is based on the laws of the United States, specifically 17 United States Code 502-505, 17 U.S.C. 502-505.
The law is clear and straightforward; if you infringe someone's intellectual property you will have to stop the infringement act immediately and; if you profit from the infringed work you'll have to pass the profits to the original creator. I wasn't really aware of the latter. Thankfully, my lawyers know how much effort I have put into the development of Tardigrades and they know all the hard circumstances circling my personal life finding time for game development, so they wanted to make sure I get all my rights to keep my project alive and maintain its originality.

Back in 2014, I posted an update about The Emitter Spaceship. I was mainly focusing on demonstrating the non-linearity aspect of the game by showing the different ways the player can solve the puzzle associated with The Emitter Spaceship. Here's a link to the post from 2014.
I have explained: "Emitters are used for the main communications with Earth. They are used due to the distortion from the massive magnetic field of Jupiter." - Anas-tronaut blog
You can find more information on this post from 2015.
On the first episode of Star Trek Discovery, the Klingon's Sarcophagus -which is located in a highly radiated busy asteroids field- sent an intense light beam to communicate with other Klingon ships. Michael Burnham explained the light beam as: "It seems to be some sort of signal Emitter." - Star Trek Discovery Ep.1
Here's a YouTube video demonstrating one of the ways the player may use to reset The Emitter resulting in a message sent in the form of an intense beam of light: (no spoilers)

I wanted to keep you updated regarding the Tardigrades and Star Trek Discovery post from October 18th 2017. First of all, I want to thank everyone who posted videos, articles and even talked about the issue in their social media. The last 10 months were so hard on me and the development of the project. I tried every possible way to have a respectful and reasonable discussion with CBS but they treated me in disrespect and just dangled me around with postponing meetings due to their vacations and being busy. The first conversation turned into the last one. I gave them a lot of time to make things right. Unfortunately, I found myself at a dead end with them, and so I had to enforce my rights by filing a lawsuit to treat me seriously.
