Sadly, I see the Trek franchise slowly fading away. The novelverse can't keep going on forever, and the Nuverse will only be good for a movie every 2-3 years as long as it stays popular. Maybe five or six movies or so going by precedent of the TOS and TNG movie runs. I just don't think there's enough of an audience to sustain a new series either. Sci-fi shows are way more expensive and who would want to foot a bill for that when there are a hundred other channels competing and you can churn out a new reality show that costs next to nothing?
Sure reality shows are cheaper to producer, and have a quicker return on expenditure. But how many of those reality shows will be being played in 50 years time?

TOS is still in re-runs almost 50 years after it first aired. So it is still making money.

So it might be a case of a loss in the short term, but a profit in the long term.
On the continent of wild endeavour in the mountains of solace and solitude there stood the citadel of the time lords, the oldest and most mighty race in the universe looking down on the galaxies below sworn never to interfere only to watch.
