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

The fact that Star Trek would be expensive is a reason why CBS wouldnt do it. Why do an expensive space opera when you can do another cop show and get a bigger audience?
You seem to totally discount CBS wanting to try and do something outside their comfort zone. The $2.5 million dollars per episode for the episodic NCIS in syndication may have CBS taking a hard look at what other properties, if done right, might have legs not only in first run but also in syndication. And it would take too long and require too much editing for an off-network Trek to hit big in the syndication market.

You can't hit a home run if you don't swing the bat.
