Drew decreasing ratings with every attempt after TNG.
And yet TNG (a series with a new crew, new ship, and new adventures) was a ratings success.
TNG was a success , true, and 'Patrick Stewart and the gold guy' hold a place in pop culture. Maybe not quite to the extent of Kirk and Spock. But sadly, the TNG movies met with the laws of diminishing returns. After First Contact, the final two TNG movies just didn't connect with non-Trek audiences.
The movies are a totally different situation than the TV shows, however. What works well on television doesn't always work well in theatres (I think the success rate of TV shows that go to the big screen really isn't all that great to begin with, though Hollywood keeps trying).
