That argument still makes no sense. Just because one facet of Star Trek is easy money does not preclude CBS also investing in something that's less easy. They do it all the time, when they launch a new series that has no established fanbase, such as this year's Vegas.
So if they're willing to do things that aren't easy money in general, why would the name Star Trek turn them off? A new series would be synergistic with the older series, helping promote each other.
Sure it makes sense. They won't want remastered Trek competing with new Trek for syndication, streaming and home video dollars.
CBS likely knows that the Trek glut of the late 90's contributed to the franchise downfall in the early 2000's.
