Why did they cancel Star Trek?

Falling ratings in the US.
When Star Trek was cancelled it did not suffer from low ratings. In fact, it was a top twenty show. However, the special effects of the day did cost a great deal. Because of this, the show was cancelled and to the heartbreak of millions of fans was replaced by Bracken's World.
The popularity of the show generating 3 Spin offs and movies proves that perhaps this was not the best decision.
