STiD is still a huge success
Are completely incompatible.
but it was not as successful as the studios intended.
You mean "hoped". They're still gonna make a big profit and there will be a third movie. What more could a fan want? EVERY movie wishes it could pull Dark Knight/Avengers numbers. That doesn't mean every movie that doesn't is a disappointment. There is quite a leap between making a profit and taking over the world.
STiD was much more of a huge fan service to TOS trek fans thereby alienating new fans...The box office is proof of that.
You mean the *massive* overseas gains over the last movie? Alienating new fans?
