Re: If star trek 2 is successful could CBS make more star trek attract

Yeah, I don't think the powers that be will be in any hurry to double dip again after the clear change in Trek's theatrical business when TNG was airing.

Why watch for payment when you can watch for free, and while not everyone feels that way certainly, there is absolute evidence in the immediate impact TNG had on the theatrical side of Trek when it started.

Of course now there is the fact that CBS runs the tv side and another business runs the movie side, so it is possible that CBS production might eventually insist on some form of televised Trek.

But realistically with the tv business model under going such dramatic changes, its harder and harder and harder for a production to be a viable success, and like it or not having a Star Trek series is expensive, far more then the typical hour long drama.
