And I wouldn't hold out much hope for syndication being a factor. The syndication market has changed greatly since the days of TNG.
Not really, it's just gone back to the way it was before
TNG--dominated by re-runs from existing shows as well as daytime fare. There really isn't a necessity for first-run dramas due to the influx of shows airing on cable (it won't be too long before we'll see re-runs of current shows like The Walking Dead
and Game of Thrones
popping up in syndication).
But a new Trek series would have a better chance in being sold in syndication than something new no one's ever heard of before due to name recognition alone.
