is far too big a brand name to ever fade away, especially with JJ Abrams keeping it fresh on everyone's minds and proving it can still make big bucks, NBC just tried to revive The Munsters
and now there's talk of a new Twilight Zone
revival. Star Trek
is definitely a bigger name than either of those (tho in the case of TZ, it's a closer call.)
The major holdup is not the power of the Star Trek
brand but the difficulty of making live action space opera work financially on TV, plus the lack of any reason for CBS to be interested until someone with clout makes a pitch to them. When Orci makes his pitch, then maybe we'll see some activity.
