Just base on gross box office money made by each film, this is a rough guess of the money to date:

1. Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979) - Worlwide Box Office Gross: $139 Million

2. Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982) - Worldwide Box Office Gross: $97 Million

3. Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (1984) - Worldwide Box Office Gross: $87 Million

4. Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986) - Worldwide Box Office Gross: $133 Million

5. Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (1989) - Worldwide Box Office Gross: $63 Million

6. Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991) - Worldwide Box Office Gross: $96.9 Million

7. Star Trek Generations (1994) - Worldwide Box Office Gross: $118 million

8. Star Trek: First Contact (1996) - Worldwide Box Office Gross: $146 Million

9. Star Trek: Insurrection (1998) - Worldwide Box Office Gross: $112 Million

10. Star Trek: Nemesis (2002) - Worldwide Box Office Gross: $67 Million

11. Star Trek (2009) - Worldwide Box Office Gross: $385.5 million

12. Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) - Worldwide Box Office Gross: $330.5 Million (as of June 3, 2013)

Now I know it's different times different money scales, but still this isn't bad money. So if nothing else he knows how to bring in the cash.

Is that with or without the extra ticket's he brought?

First one was bad enough, the second just stank of a rip off of ST 2. The only thing I'll give him break for is his pencil if he tries to do a third movie.

I adjusted everything to today's (2013) Dollars.

Edited to be correct now.

I've nothing in particular against JJ Abrams, but... so what?

If there's one thing I've learned over years of watching and reading the good and the bad, it's that popularity and quality have no discernible relationship to each other. (Shakespeare and Dickens were among the most popular authors of their day... many other popular authors of the same day have fallen into well-deserved obscurity.)

So, to my mind, box-office numbers prove absolutely nothing about whether a film's worth seeing - one way or the other.

I think you made an error in Star Trek: Insurrection. 1 billion dollars seems too high for that movie.

In all this, did you take inflation into account?

No?

Thought so.

That's no reason to overlook any of the reasons people dislike him or his 'work'

Maybe you should mention the budgets of the movies. Then you will realize, that the new movies are not that successful in financial terms.

Star Trek (2009) had a budget of $ 150 Millions, this is a profit of 180%.
Into the Darkness had a budget of $ 190 Millions, profit of 73% (but still growing).

The profits of the older Movies are comparable, most were more profitable.

Star Trek: 200%
Star Trek II: 766%
Star Trek III: 443%
Star Trek IV: 533%
Star Trek V: 90%
Star Trek VI: 250%
Star Trek VII: 227%
Star Trek VIII: 224%
Star Trek IX: 93 %
Star Trek X: 11%

You see, in financial terms the second, third and fourth movie were awesome, the new ones are just (expensive) standard.

Feel free to compare Abrams profits to other Sci-Fi-Movies (E. T., Alien, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Avatar, all six Star Wars-Movies etc.) and you will determin: He is just overestimated.

No offense to you or JJ, but Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (arguably the WORST Star Wars film of all time) grossed $474,544,677 domestically in 1999 dollars ... which would be worth $665,560,556.80 in 2013 thanks to inflation.

Just because people pay money to watch a movie doesn't mean the movie is good.

According to boxofficemojo.com there are 66 feature films that have domestic grosses greater than the first "JJ Trek" film and more than 20 of those films I would personally say are absolutely horrible.

Again, ticket sales don't really speak to the quality of a film or a director ... it just speaks to how willing the public was to pay for tickets.

It's probably why there is no Oscar given for highest box office gross.
