Rubbish - when the BBC showed Trek it was buried in the weekday tea-time 'kiddie' slot on the relatively unwatched BBC2. Doctor Who is schedule centre, peak family viewing Saturday evening fayre. There is nothing more mainstream.
When I say "mainstream", I meant it as "mainstream for earth", not "mainstream for a tiny country in Europe".
I'd hesitate to call any genre show mainstream ANYWHERE'. Even shows like The X-Files, which makes Who's breakthrough in the UK all the more surprising. Even shows like Trek don't manage that (or come anywhere near it !). Yes, this is the U.K. and not representative of the rest of the world.

I'd say Trek is easily the best known worldwide. I'm not convinced it's 'mainstream' anywhere though.
Soon oh soon the light, Pass within and soothe this endless night, And wait here for you, Our reason to be here...
