I disagree. At the risk of sounding like my screen name, your statement is not logical. Assuming this movie is (and any others to follow are) successful as hoped, wouldn't there be a dependable demand for the same in future projects? This group of characters helped Gene Roddenberry launch a successful product over 40-years ago. Since then, Star Trek has made a fortune and is still a household name. Why wouldn't JJ Abrams want to tap into that, as well? If there's money to be made from movies, then there's money to be made on TV as well. Otherwise, Lost and Fringe would be a waste of a very busy director's time and resources.
