Again, companies do not invest in licensed products with no expectation of profit, or if it is understood that the audience for that level of license is small. That is the reason we do not see innumerable items based on Love American Style or Alf, decades after they aired their respective series finale. Reiterating, the only part of the franchise that died was anything tied to the Rick Berman pile of series. After hundreds of episodes produced between TNG-ENT, when it all crashed, it was judged as being something removed from TOS tv/movies--not a part of it. The sideline beauty of it all was that Berman and his crew spent so much time trying to escape the cultural impact / creative influence of TOS, that when his ST crashed, it did not drag TOS into the soldering Berman rubble.
