I doubt that the nineties with two Trek shows running parallelly will be repeated. As Tom has pointed out, this is a Gold Age for television and the good shows are not rushed / overproduced.

While oversaturation has indeed been indeed a problem I think it is overrated (would we really wanna miss the majority of Trek) disagree with the standard narrative about B&B plus post-TNG leading to a near-death of Trek for a very simple reason, Trek went into hiatus precisely when it became good. There is no deep structural failure, just an arbitrary business decision like in the case of Firefly which doesn't reveal anything of relevance in creative terms.
