Trying to develop STO outright killed one developer and it was dropped like a hot potato by another, and a potential competitor fell apart due to lack of investment.
Combine this with the traditional problems of Star Trek games, the fundamental incompatibility of many ideals that Star Trek fans espouse as sacrosanct and the basics of most mainstream gameplay, the desire of most companies to not try to pitch their tent where so many other developers splattered, and the Prime universe grinding to a halt outside of the novels, and chances are if STO dies, the only other replacement that will ever emerge will be based solely on the Abram's reboot.
