And let me tell you a little something about Anniversaries (NOT Birthdays). If it wasn't for the 25th Anniversary of Star Trek, Star Trek V would have most likely killed the film franchise. After all, TNG was getting better and TOS just walked away with an embarrassing bomb.
I think there's a compelling case that the twenty-fifth anniversary led Paramount into making another theatrical feature starring the original cast, but I highly doubt that the failure of the fifth movie would have stopped Paramount from producing another Trek feature.
