2009 Star Trek found favour in US audiences ($258m) far more than abroad ($128m).

Paramount are canny enough to not let as well known a name as Star Trek to slip by in this age of franchise cinema - they know a certain audience will lap up big screen Trek in any iteration. But they'll want a significant improvement on the international figure for ST to be a true major player, because that's how it rolls these days.
From wiki:

Star Trek received highly positive reviews from film critics. The film has a 95% approval rating on the review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, based on 295 reviews, with the consensus: "Star Trek reignites a classic franchise with action, humor, a strong story, and brilliant visuals, and will please traditional Trekkies and new fans alike."[146] Metacritic, which assigns a weighted average score, gave the film a 83 out of 100 based on 37 reviews from critics

The film cost 150 million and made 385 million.

Yes I'd call the film a success. (which was my original point)
