Each success met with a push forward, and each stumble met with a slight course correction, the Star Trek franchise has pushed forward with an overall positive return on investment of 159.1% in the movie side alone, not to mention the countless episodes of TV, home video and digital releases that have followed since.

As many times as the franchise has come to the brink of ending fate has intervened, and as we all know…
Fate protects fools, small children and ships named Enterprise, and it also protects movies named Star Trek.
