I could easily see the IP being picked up by a company willing to create something more in depth, and less arcade, due to the massive interest shown so far. If STO fails at this point, its all Cryptic, and nothing to do with the concept.
true it could fail, and they could make another one. if it fails are they going to start making on next year? I would have to say no, why? because this game has been in production for over 10 years. first starting on the Ps2, and jumping around until cryptic. during his whole time CBS has been investing money in to it, and they are looking for a return on the investment.
so how long will it be before they look at it, 5 10, 15 years, added to that how long would the development time take. you also have to take in to account that in that time the generation that playing now will be a lot older, and the primary generation my not be in to star trek.
so question is are you willing to risk that, or would like to help make this game good, and mold it in to something great?
