Battlestar Galactica Blood and Chrome had a budget of 2 million. And that was considered a pilot. Once all virtual models are done the budget per episode should have been lower, as these virtual set could be reused from different virtual camera angles and so on so I think it is safe to talk about lower budgets per episode like .5-1 million range, with some exceptions like highlight episodes and season finales, and could be lower than .5 millions for bottle episodes.
The Star Trek: Enterprise pilot cost twelve million dollars to make. I know reports had TNG at a budget of $1.3 million dollars an episode in 1987.

If they're going to make Trek look cheap I'd rather they not make it at all.
