That's an interesting visual summation of monetary (and popular) success there, EC.
But I also think it shows that Star Trek is quite the capable alternative in terms of viability for those who may not like Star Wars.

I remember, sometimes I used to post box office numbers between the staggering success of six Star Wars films, vs the decent, but far lagging monetary success of the first 10 Star Trek films. The 11th film, Star Trek 2009 was largely responsible for narrowing that gap. Now that there are new productions of Star Wars underway, and considering that even the prequels did mega blockbuster success, I think we'll see Star Wars gain the severe monetary lead it once had. I also have a sneaking suspicion that the newer Star Trek productions will give Star Wars a run for its pun intended.

But in terms of viability, both are standouts.
