See how that works out? If it has no chance of selling, then no one is going to invest a hundred-million dollars to make it.

Kirk and Spock are Star Trek's icons. They are the ones that everyone knows. It is a no-brainer for a corporate suit that if you're going to put Trek on TV, that you center it around the characters that the general populace knows.

In my opinion, Star Trek won't be coming back to the small screen for the foreseeable future. Even with Kirk and Spock, there's too much risk and not enough reward in bankrolling a sci-fi, action-adventure series.
