How many sci-fi, spaceship-based TV movies have you seen recently? I'm gonna guess zero, because nobody wants to spend money on that genre or that format. Not even Skiffy.
Whilst not a TV Movie, Red Dwarf springs to mind it had a new series last year, did well enough in the ratings, it was reasonable well recieved and could get another season.
I haven't seen the new series yet (or the second and third parts of Back to Earth, for that matter), but I doubt the budget of Red Dwarf is more than a fraction of what it would cost to fund even a small Star Trek TV movie.
I doubt the whole Red Dwarf budget would cover the catering bill for Broken Bow

But, at least they make good use of what they do have!
