If Paramount was savvy enough in the 70's to take Phase 2 from a TV series into a movie, I honestly think there may be some pushing by Paramount in the past few days for Abrams to start building buzz on Into Darkness.

I don't think it's a fair assumption that Paramount being savvy 35 years ago is any indication for today - most of the people making decisions then are no longer with the company.
That said, I don't think a more excited and active sci-fi fan base can be much of anything but good for both franchises.
