Legion, we are talking about two different things. You are speaking of the commercial viability, while I am addressing the success of story as told through various art forms.
Many art forms that you would not perceive as commercially viable have received awards and are hung in museums, praised throughout the world, perhaps not here on the esteemed TrekBBS by critics such as yourself.
If one wanted to tell a Star Trek story, it really doesn't matter what it looks like, or if you like the computer animation used to tell it.
I understand that Shaka is simply a proponent for a more photo-realistic Trek Animated series, and that you are not. That's pretty much it.
