You're a fan. Star Trek doesn't have many fans and certainly not enough fans to warrant the enormous cost of this film.

After six weeks, it's not equal to its predecessor in terms of domestic gross versus costs. And given that exhibitors earn a higher percentage with each passing week, it's unlikely that Into Darkness will be much of a "winner" for Paramount (although it's foreign grosses are nearly 50% higher).

The bottom line is that this film isn't performing as expected, which makes it unlikely that Paramount will even entertain investing $150 million into another Trek film, let alone $190 million.

With Abrams off doing Star Wars, the future of this franchise is murky at best.
