It has made the top 100 of All Time Domestic Box Office Gross according to boxofficemojo.com. Currently at #89. To date, also the top grossing film of 2009!

How was it destroyed? You realize of course that movies are made to make money, regardless of them being Star Trek or not. I doubt the failure of Nemesis made you feel great.

Additionally, an idea is the hardest thing to destroy. Even if the current Star Trek movie had been a parody, it would not have destroyed the original Star Trek. The reason for that, of course, is that Star Trek lives in the minds of millions.

Star Trek, in its highest form, is simply the expression of that which is good in all of us. In this sense, it is something like the fictitious "Force" of the Star Wars universe -- except that it is real. As long as we believe in Trek, it has power.

Not bad for something that is not a religion.

Oh, it's a religion.
The very word "Religion" stems from the Latin word religare, which means "to tie, to bind." [You know this as "continuity" - "canon" enters later]

Qualifications for religion according the The Encyclopedia of Philosophy:

1: Belief in a "Universal Creator" or "God/Gods".
[Roddenberry]

2: Distinction between sacred and profane objects.
[I'll let your imagination wander here - but it's not coincidence many cite Star Wars and other such nonsense as a basis for their exclusivity]

3: Ritual acts focused on sacred objects.
[Conventions and merchandising among other applicable activities]

4: A moral code believed to be sanctioned by the "Universal Creator" or "God/Gods".
[Self-explanatory]

5: Characteristically religious feelings which tend to be aroused in the presence of sacred objects and during the practice of ritual.
[OMFG! I have "x's" signature! Dude, I bought a phaser that was really used on the show in episode... etc.]

6: Prayer and other forms of communication with the "Universal Creator" or "God/Gods".
[Many, many devotees authoritatively speak for the dusty Roddenberry and his desires he apparently gives from beyond the grave; normally called priests or variations thereof]

7: A world/generalized view of the world as a whole and the place of the individual therein. This view contains some specification of an over-all purpose or point of the world and an indication of how the individual fits into it.
[Simply put (an example); Geeks vs Jocks. Imagine the sheer terror of mainstreaming Trek. These people lose their unique place in the cosmos]

8: A more or less total organization of one’s life based on the world view.
[This is the proverbial "basement dweller" syndrome.]

9: A social group bound together by the above.
[Trekker not Trekkie. Get it right!]

10: A strict definition of acceptable beliefs and doctrine encompassing and shaping the belief system established by the "Universal Creator" or "God/Gods".
[Canon; the teachings or bible of the religion]

May I ask how it was destroyed? Really, I'm curious.

And destroyed for the almighty $$$$. Sorry, but Star Trek needed $$$$ so that we would still have Star Trek.
