The amount FX pays for the TV rights is based on a percentage of domestic box office, so STID will make a little less than Star Trek, but it'll still be a good amount. The license fee FX pays is 10-12% of the ultimate domestic gross.
Edit to add: the weekend actual is $3,166,709 for $216,777,625 so far.
Small upwards rise in the actual, but what's good is that it made about $1 million or more 2 of the 3 days.
