Okay Star Trek recently celebrated its fiftieth anniversary. But with mixed signals coming from the Discovery team and the often hostile reactions to the Kelvinverse not to mention its financial flopping has the Trek franchise run out of steam? Is it no longer possible to tell stories and discuss relevant issues under its framework and banner? Is it on its way to being a spent and gasp dead franchise? Except in our hearts of course. There are still novels coming out but the readership is few and can't sustain the franchise by itself. The kelvin comics have minimal readership and it seems all is coming to not. Is trek about to reach the end of its life? I would be heartbroken to see it pass away but as the famous quote goes all good things must come to an end. PS: I'm not trolling or seeking to throw spit bombs Im interested in how people perceive the future of the franchise and whether or not it's tank is completely out of gas without a million miles so to speak?
