Hmmmm. A once popular sci-fi franchise with it's own (not overly popular) TV series making a return to the big screen with new actors... no big stars... and a summer release.
What a tremendous show of faith. They must be expecting a hit.
It is still
a popular Sci-Fi franchise, sir. And it's comprised of no less than 5 TV series and 10 feature films spanning over 40 years. And I'm sorry if Leonard Nimoy isn't a big enough star for you. So, yes, they evidently have a lot of faith in the new picture and are, in fact, expecting a hit.
