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.
Actually, I was referring to Terminator. I'll do my best to not read anything into the fact that you assumed I was talking about Trek.
I'm well aware of Star Trek's history. I'm also well aware that the last Terminator movie is conslidered a failure, despite grossing more than any film in Star Trek history.
