Re: Did Abrams really save the franchise?

2002: Nemesis is a major flop, and there are no serious plans for future Trek movies.

2005: Berman-era Trek is dead with the cancellation of Enterprise.

2009: JJ Abrams' Star Trek is a big hit.

2013: Star Trek Into Darkness is a performing a little below expectations in the US, but doing massively better than the last movie overseas.


I'd wager that if it weren't for the new movies reviving interest in Star Trek, TNG wouldn't be getting the HD treatment now.

Sounds saved to me.
