I think eventually it will return, nothing stays dead forever in Hollywood. But I think the product will be so different from the Berman shows that it will be unrecognizable. Which may end up being a bigger blow to those who want Trek back than no show at all.
So, in other words, it'll be like the transition from TOS to TNG, which IMO made Star Trek the phenomenon that it is.

Star Trek: The Next Generation helped, but the franchise as phenomenon definitely began in the 1970s, when the original series was in daily syndication and conventions were a weekly occurrence.
What Harvey said. Star Trek was a pretty big phenomenon well before TNG arrived on the scene.

TOS continues to be the King well after general audiences have forgotten about Berman Trek.
